what is a good program to recover erased photos?

I accidently erased some photos, and I have found programs listed online to recover the erased images. Any suggestions on a good, safe program to download and use? Prefer free.

"... and the card reader in my printer is not recognizing my card ..."

 

Get a dedicated card reader. Don't try to use the one in the printer. Card readers are not expensive.

Photorec is open source and free. But you will need a card reader.

Thanks for all the great suggestions. Sandisk only found 13 of my photos, so I did not pay for the program to recover my photos. I tried cgsecurity.org/wiki/PhotoRec and had great results. Recovered all 192 photos, and was able to create a winderful dvd for my friends. Highly recommend this program. Oh yeah, found that my laptop has a built in sd slot!!!!

H-Data Recovery Master is a good data recovery software to retrieve all deleted file on PC hard drive, SD card, USB drive, etc.

Hey, friend! After experiencing mobile phone Micro SD card file loss problems, I know the deleted data off from memory card could be restored back with the help of deleted data recovery software before these original SD card photos are overwritten by new photos, files and the likes on the same memory card.

So, no matter what happens, always keep this SD card away from new stuffs and go try some photo recovery software.

Honestly, last time, I have read many related articles, posts and threads and learned this. Perhaps, you may also visit these posts and learn more detailed information like:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Data_recovery

Or http://www.icare-recovery.com/howto/memory-card-photo-recovery.html

Timely back up all restored photos well on another memory card, flash drive or hard drive
