Answers :

As long as the xD card was not formatted it is possible to recover the images that were accidently erased or lost. You can go to the following website link and download an image recovery software program that is free of charge.
You want to download a program called Zero Assumption Recovery. It is a very simple program to use and many people have had much success in recovering lost images or corrupted.

Data recovery is a booming industry, and many appropriate services and software can be found by searching regional phone and business directories or the Internet for terms such as "image recovery" or "data recovery".
Have you tried this camera memory card on your computer?
\012 If this memory card can be read functionally on your computer, you'd better copy off all your stored photos to another memory card or drive and format this card immediately to check whether it can still be read on your camera.
\012 But, if this card unfortunately also gets the same error on your computer, you'd better try to apply a memory card photo recovery freeware to get all your stored photos back successfully for free:

\012 In fact, this freeware helped a lot as the external hard drive of my friend was mistakenly formatted. It finally restored all the needed data of my friend. It always works well on both of a memory card and a hard drive. So, I believe it will also help you a lot.
\012 Try to read more information of this freeware here:

\012 After experiencing these troubles, I hope you can learn a valuable lesson to back up everything important well all the time.

When I recently turned on my camera (D-630 Zoom) to take a picture, I got the message titled Card Setup, with two options "Power off" and "Format". I turned the camera off, took out the memory card (1GB) and put it back in, as I did the last (and only) time this happened, about two years ago.
