Answers :

Formatting is erasing the memory card and preparing it to take new photos. If you haven't saved the photos to your computer yet, you will need to find a memory card utility that "rescues" data (pictures, in this case) from a card. You can go to your card manufacturers (Kingston, Sandisk, or whatever your brand is) website and find a suggestion for what utility they suggest.
\015\012If you had them saved to your computer, no worries, just start taking pictures again!

There is a program that will retrieve photos off a accidentally formatted camera card, Camera's don't actually wipe the contents when they format, they only wipe the File Allocation Table (index for where the photo's are).
Connect the camera so you can see card like a hard drive on your computer, run this program. Smartrecovery should recover the pictures.


It is a free program. I have had much success with it.
