    Hi ppl.
    I own a Canon A75 digicam and accidentally formatted the Compact Flash card from within the camera. The "accident" happened the last day of my vacation :(

    (blank here: take your time and laugh!)

    Ok now, what strikes me is that the CF is formatted instantly, while the "true" writing of bytes to the card (e.g. when taking a picture) takes a while. So there should be a method -I presume- to recover the bytes, just like the Norton tools recovers erased files from a hard disk.

    Does anybody know of such a tool, or solution??
