Formatting deletes all the data in the memory.

The best you can do to retrieve the data is to use a file recovery software like :

1. TuneUp Utilities 2009 - http://www.tune-up.com/products/tuneup-utilities
2. Recover My Files - http://www.recovermyfiles.com/
3. 001micron - http://www.001micron.com/

Do it as soon as possible !!


I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.

I tried to charge the battery, thinking it was a bad battery, but the battery charger would continuously blink a red flash for hours! Can this camera be saved?
