    I did pretty dumb thing today. I accidently formated my CF through my
    camera menu (Canon Powershot G3). I was wondering if there is any way
    to recover 200+ pictures I had in it?

    Thanks and Regards,
    Mandar

    Google for PC Inspector File Recovery (Not Smart recovery). That
    program will recover all your images. It's free.

    Sure you can. Go to the www.vaiosoft.com website and download their flash
    recovery program. You will however need to put your CF card into a card
    reader.

    Yep, iF you haven't written to it since. I believe you can find
    something by Googling for photo recovery software.

    And use the vaiosoft site mentioned earlier. I like it better than pc
    inspector. I actually use PhotoRescue because I paid for it before
    stumbling across the freebies.

    As others have said, there are both free and fee programs for doing this. In
    my experience, I've found that such programs didn't necessarily recover all
    the files nor were the programs all equivalent in what they could recover. I
    suspect though that if you only formatted the card and did not write any
    more data to it that you should be able to recover all your pictures. Just
    to be sure, you should try a couple of the programs. You will of course need
    a CF reader to do all this.

    Thanks all for replies. Its such a relief to know that these pictures
    can be recovered. Luckily I have not written anything to CF card after
    formatting. I will get to it once I reach home. Will let you guys know
    how it goes...

    Take it OUT of the camera. NOW. Before it DOES accidentally get
    written to.

    Thanks. Just thats what I did.
    I ended up using VAIOsofts recovery manager. It worked great.

    Again, thanks a lot for all the help.
