recover files from card that needed to be reformatted?

Was using one of my sisters cameras and didn't know she uses 1 card for all of them, so I took photos, they were all in the playback until the camera died. I took the card out today and the card is empty. I tried to use easeUS recovery wizard to get the files, but no luck. Is there any way to recover files from a card in this scenario? Theres photos on the camera from one camera and yes I did look at other folders to try to find them. I also made sure the card was not locked.

okay, thanks. my idiot self turned the camera on and off alot because it was low battery, so most likely even if it were to work, in my case theres no hope ): but never again, so at least i'll learn to use my own card and reformat if ever borrowing a camera again.
