Help! I have lost video files (mpeg) from my Sony Memory Stick Pro Duo.?
I have made a terrible mistake! I have formatted the memory stick thinking that I have transferred the files to my PC. The problem was that I transferred files from the internal camcorder memory (Sony DCR-SX30) and not from the memory stick. Then I formatted the stick using the camcorder and freed the space for other recordings. I recorded again other videos and formatted the stick for the second time. Now, I'm trying to recover the files and all I recover is the files before the second format. I can't recover the files from my first format. Does anyone has a solution to this problem. I tried all kinds of data recovery software (Recover my files, File Scavanger, EASEUS Data Recovery) but to no avail. These videos are of my little daughter who just finished a preschool program and are very important to me. Please help! Thank you!

Impossible, the second writing over wrote any possibility of recovering any data. Before erasing your memory make a working backup copy to CD or DVD. Also never do any editing on your originals. Write protect your media when removing from camera. Media is cheap have s spare,

You may have been able to recover them after the format, but (as mentioned above) if you've written anything to the device since then, then it's very unlikely that anything will recover them.
