Is there a way to fully recover files from emptied trash on Mac 10.8.2? Or from a formatted Sandisk Compact Flash card?

I have some very important Canon Raw files (cr2) that I need to recover. The folder was placed in trash can on Macbook Pro and deleted. The CF card was formatted and written over.
I have tried every obvious solution from google results. Nothing has worked. Sandisk Rescue Pro is not recovering any of the deleted images on the card, just the images from the most recent shoot. It seems in the past I was able to recover files that were months old. But perhaps that was when I would just delete the the images on the card, not performa a full reformat as I do now.
CardRescue and other software has recovered some of the CR2 files from deleted trash but I cannot open the files. File type cannot be recognized. Was able to recover some of the small JPEGS but not all, which I assume are the preview files.
Any suggestions at all? I am desperate for help! Any advice is appreciated!
