Try PhotoRec.

Thanks - but this did not work. Is there some application that can obtain the missing files from the camcorder itself?

If your camcorder uses a flash memory card, and that card shows up as a drive letter on your computer (either while it's in the camcorder, or when it's removed from the camcorder and inserted into a card reader), then PhotoRec should be able to find it on the card. (That is, if it's retrievable at all.)

Does your camcorder use a flash memory card?

What model camcorder do you have?
