Formatting on Canon IXUS75

\015 HiI was playing around with my camera last night trying to get the photo delay shorter and stumbled across the "format" bit on the menu. Not knowing what is is and pressed the button. now all my pictures have gone? can you tell me what the format bit is? and if there is anyway of getting my pictures back?Thanks\015

Answers :

Formatting erases all information on the memory card, preparing it for further use.

If you haven't done anything else to the card since formatting, you may be able to recover at least some of the photos. Do a Google search for "data recovery software" and select a program for your computer and operating system. Put the card into a card reader attached to your computer and run the program.
