    We're looking for software to recover pictures files from a digital camera
    storage card -- an xD card, in this case. Anybody got any
    recommendations???

    Thanks!!!

    So I am pretty new to digital photography, well actually photography
    in general... only ever had a point and shoot. Recently decided to
    get more into it and now have the Digital Rebel. So I accidently
    reformatted the card with a bunch of pictures on it back in December
    and didn't realize there was recovery software until now. I have
    continued to used the card, is it still possible that the photos
    I erased are on the card or do you need to do the recovery immediately
    after you screw up?

    Thanks,

    Cindy

  5. YOu pretty much have to fix it at once, or at least before you overwrite
    the very images you want to recover:

    Once overwritten, they are forever gone. :-(

    PS. I can recommend PhotoRescue for these jobs, it managed to recover
    all 35+ lost images when my camera/card glitched on a tour to Svalbard
    (at N78 latitude). Going back and retaking the images was definitely not
    an option!

    For best results you need to apply recovery procedures immediately, and
    you should use non-destructive software that leaves the original card
    unmolested and works on a copy of the data.

    But there is no harm in trying - you may get something back. It all
    depends on whether or not you have filled the media with new pictures
    since.

    Regards,
