    Welcome to Android Central! If you already tried recovery software and were unsuccessful, then I'm afraid you're out of luck. I doubt removing the card without unmounting first was the real problem -- it's probably more likely that the other person formatted the card bfore copying a game onto it.

    In any case, see this guide: [Guide] Recovering Deleted Files - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    Did you root your phone before using the recovery softwares? To restore files with this tool, root is required.Then it can access your internal storage.

    You don't need to root the phone. Put the SD card in a card reader connected to your PC and run the recovery software.

    It is perhaps wise to back up personal data, including photos and videos, to more than one place.
