Answers :

First do not panic! It is possible to recover your pictures\015\012if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered off) and if it has a\015\012"write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try and write anything\015\012to the card or you risk causing more problems.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012You can either plug in you camera to the PC as it should\015\012appear as a “Removable Drive”\015\012or put the card in a card reader attached to your PC.
\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can\015\012download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the following link:

\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012If you need something a little more "user\015\012friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search the web\015\012for photo recovery software you will find many.
\015\012\015\012One I have used successfully is RescuePro that used to be\015\012bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the link below:

\015\012\015\012
\015\012\015\012Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to the card\015\012until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!
