[RndTbl] help! data recovery

I downloaded pics from 2 digital cameras.  Each had a 1GB SD card, which 
I removed, put in a cheap USB card reader, and plugged into my machine.  
I copied all the photos - or so I thought.  After ensuring I had copies 
on 2 separate HDDs, I erased the SD cards.  My wife says there are 
missing photos - and there may be - one of the cameras sufficiently 
wiped its memory that it resumed counting the photos from zero.

The card-in-stick shows up under fstab as a vfat file system.  I only 
took one photo on each card after reformatting.

Is there a decent Linux program which will allow me to recover the 
(presumably) lost files?
