I use ZAR:
http://www.z-a-recovery.com/digital-image-recovery.htm

It works incredibly. it takes a while, (depends on how large of a memory card you have), but it recovers 90% of the photos.

Those are a few off the first page of a search.

I have used http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Download with some success.

If you have not written over the files(taken more pictures), then you should be able to get the files back.
