Just learn a valuable lesson to back up all wanted data on different drives or places timely.
But, right now, you should act carefully to see whether you can retrieve all your photos back:
1). Do not format or rewrite this not formatted memory card at first.
2). Plunge this memory card to a computer and see whether all your inaccessible photos could be restored in advance.
Just act carefully in the data recovery process.
3). Save and back up all restored photos on your computer drives or other places, not on the original memory card.

depends the type of format, with normal format it sort of make the bit avaiable again on it actually leaves the information on it.
Back in XP this might have been true, Anvh.

But formatting in Windoze since Vista does a secure zeroing of the data.

Even the 'quick' format, which is faster only because it doesn't wait to scan for bad sectors first.
