I lost my pictures after i accidentally re-formatted my SD card. I haven't used the card since. Is it possible to retrieve the lost pics. Whats the best way to do this?
thanks for your help.

Typically, reformatting a card doesn't actually erase all the files; it just forgets where they are. So, yes, it is very likely that you can retrieve tyour lost photos.

One of the best programs for doing that is PhotoRec from CGSecurity. It's a free download.
