Hi!

There are a lot of recovery software that you can use to recover deleted files - specially pictures. You can try to use Zero Assumption Recovery. You can download the software at this site:
http://www.z-a-recovery.com/download.htm

It's a free software (you do not neet to pay to use this), and it's easy to use.

Here are the steps that you need to do:
1.) After you install this software, connect your camera or memory card to your PC . Open the Zero Assumption Recovery software.

2.) Click Next. Select "Recover images from the digital camera.." and click Next again.

3.) Select the Physical Device - select your camera or memory card , click Next. [grab a cup of coffee since retrieving the files may take some time depending on the size of the memory (",) ]

4.) After retrieving the files - select all the files that can be recovered. Click Next.

5.) Select the button on the right side (close to Destination) and select where you want to save the files. Click "Start recovering files".

That's it.

I hope that helps.

Good luck and have a nice day!

OK! Don't panic! Nowadays, the formatting process doesn't really erase everything on a computer drive or camera memory card as we normally think. The contained data can be there forever as long as they are not overwritten by anything new on the same drive or memory card. So, you need to act carefully to get back your pictures:
Firstly, stop using this camera immediately in case that any new file is unintentionally written there.
Secondly, download a camera recovery freeware to restore all your deleted photos back easily.
This data recovery freeware can deeply scan your camera and get back all your wanted photos back successfully in the same way as it completely regained all the data of my friend back from this formatted camera.
If you are interested, you can download this camera recovery freeware here:

Thirdly, save and back up every restored photo on another memory card or drive in case of data recovery failure.
Good luck!

Make sure that you do a format in your computer before you reinstall your card,check to see which format you require some want fat 32 others may require a different format.

Lost pics

Format completely erases the card. Only do that after you've safely downloaded the pictures to your computer.

Ok. Here is how you do it. 1. Go into the Setup menu. Hit menu and scroll right to the wrench and hammer symbol. 2. Scroll down to where it says Format and press the menu button again to select it.  3. In that menu, scroll up to Low Level Format and scroll left or right to add a check mark.  4.
