Need Help for Memory Card Recovery

1. I cannot open my memory card after my son used my Samsung mobile phone to play game. Samsung says no memory card is available when I open the media device. Then I connect the card to my Windows XP computer, and I receive a message to say memory card is not formatted. I really need some important pictures stored on this card, how can I fix the memory card not formatted error without formatting?
2. Just now, I delete several pictures on my SD card. But I don’t want to use an expensive data recovery tool just for retrieving several photos, so I want somebody to recommend a freeware or trail software with which I can get back the photos.
3. I have a SanDisk SD card 4GB of several years. I have stored many videos and photos on this card, but I formatted it due to a mistake. Unlike deleting a file from the card, all files are erased when formatting the card. Can I unformat the SD card with any solution?
