Before you start, I have to remind you of the mechanism of deletion. When files are deleted, the data is not lost immediately. It's the file system that marked the space as free so new files can be written on the space and overwrite the remaining data. Therefore you should not create new files on the XD card, i.e. don't take more photos unless and until you recovered your photos successfully.
