Having problems with your Olympus Digital Cameras ?

I accidently formatted the sd card. any chance of retrieving the photos?

Answers :

First do not panic! It is possible to\015\012recover your pictures if you take care. Take the card from the camera (powered\015\012off) and if it has a "write protect" tab then lock it now. Do not try\015\012and write anything to the card or you risk causing more problems.
\015\012\015\012You can either plug in you camera to the PC\015\012as it should appear as a “Removable\015\012 Drive” or put the card in a card reader attached\015\012to your PC.
\015\012\015\012Next, if you are comfortable with using a\015\012PC then you can download a FREE utility that will recover your photos from the\015\012following link:
\015\012\015\012If you need something a little more\015\012"user friendly" then you will need to buy the software. If you search\015\012the web for photo recovery software you will find many.
\015\012\015\012One I have used successfully is RescuePro\015\012that used to be bundled with some Sandisk products. Now you can get it from the\015\012link below:
\015\012\015\012You can try the demo to see what you can\015\012recover before buying.
\015\012\015\012Remember - Do NOT try & write anything\015\012back to the card until you can recover your pictures to your PC safely!
