Dont worry, you can still recover photos even you have format the digital camera. You may refer to this guide that helped me before:

You may also take a look at this Canon camera photo recovery solution that I find useful.

Sorry to hear that, i once meet the same case like that. I use data recovery software named Card Data Recovery to help me get back formatted photos from digital camera. Maybe you can have a try too.

I hate to tell you this, but I have looked all over the manual for the sd600 and there is no way to retrieve the images. They have been permenantly deleted. I am very sorry for this bad news.

How to unlock a photo in camara


The protect function allows a user to protect a picture from accidental deletion. To unprotect a picture on your camera, scroll to the protected picture that you want to delete, then press the Menu button (the button to the right of the Play button.) Scroll down the menu and you should come to an option that allows you to Protect/Unprotect the picture. Since your picture is currently protected, deselect that option. You should then be able to delete the picture normally.

Alternatively, you could also format the memory card, however this deletes ALL photos and data you have on the memory card. If you are trying to completely clear the memory, this is the best way. After turning on your camera, simply press the Menu button, scroll to Setup, then scroll down to Format. Select Format, it will ask you if you want to format the memory card, or the camera's built-in memory. Format whichever one you want to clear, if you are using a memory card then your pictures are stored on the memory card. It will take a few seconds to format.

Hope this helps.

images, including the protected images, will be deleted. Be sure to download important
images to your PC before formatting the memory card.
** If the memory card is not inserted, the internal memory will be formatted.
** Be sure to format the memory card if you are using a newly purchased or non-initialized

captured with a different camera.

I accidentally pressed the format button on the menu settings and all my pictures dissappeared. is there any way i can get them back?


You could try the Mem Card Recovery and flash recovery for an options. Just read first how.

http://www.cardrecovery.com/
http://www.smartpctools.com/flash_recovery/

Or try Recuva if it can also do some recovery on camera memory card at filehippo.com. But memory card should be on a memory card reader.

Goodluck.

Cards not working with camera


If you used the SD/MMC memory card in another brand of camera or device, you may need to format the card in your new EasyShare digital camera. (You may have noticed a "Memory Card Needs Formatting" message when you inserted the card.) CAUTION: Formatting deletes all pictures and videos, including those that are protected. Removing a card during formatting may damage the card. To format the SD/MMC memory card or the internal memory of the camera: Transfer images to the computer before formatting the memory card. Press the camera Menu button. Highlight SETUP MENU, and then press the OK button. Highlight FORMAT, and then press the OK button. Highlight an option - MEMORY CARD (deletes everything on the card), CANCEL (exits without formatting), or INTERNAL MEMORY (deletes everything in internal memory). Press the OK button. Highlight Continue, and then press the OK button. Wait until formatting is finished before removing the card. When formatting is complete, the SETUP MENU is displayed. Press the Menu button to exit the menu.
