How can I recover deleted raw files from my memory card?

I recently moved about 200 pictures off my memory card onto a laptop which I then had to return, forgetting that I had pictures on it. What is the best way to try to recover them from my memory card?

The pictures are in raw pef format. I've taken about 200 new pictures on the memory card since (I took it out of the camera as soon as I discovered that the original files were gone). I've tried free recovery programs like Recuva and Glary Utilities which see about 300 photos but when I try recovering them they only show up as blurry thumbnails even though the file size is listed as about the correct 14 mbs. I'm assuming it might be because of the raw format. What is the best and most powerful recovery software to recover as many photos as possible? I don't want to buy a program that might not work.
