Default Retrieving deleted files from SmartMedia/CompactFlash cards?

I have an unusual question that someone may be able to help. Is there a way to retrieve picture(s) from Compact Flash/Smart Media cards that have been deleted? For example, there are utilities that enable technical people to retrieve deleted files from computer hard drives if the space hasnít already been over-written. Are there any utilities that will do the same with Compact Flash/ Smart Media cards? I had important Wedding pictures they were deleted. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

If you have not added any more pics to the cards, then it is may be possible to retrieve the deleted files. If you email me, I will send you a freeware program that can recovery the files.

Thank you to those who had reponded. I retrieved many of the photos that otherwise would have been lost. I tried over six different software packages with varying results. I needed to perform a thorough scan of the media to get the missing pictures . The winning packages were "File Rescue Plus" and "PC Inspector Smart Recovery" .

Thanks again for your help. Hopefully, someday I will be able to return the favor.
