So, my friend, a new Mac user, accidentally deleted roughly five years worth of personal photos from his computer. Yeah. Is there any way to get them back?

He's tried Disk Repair and PhotoRec, which probably actually made things worse if what I know about Mac file structure is true. In any case, they didn't work. Frantic googling has only come up with more of the same. Are there any free/open source programs/utilities we can try. Any Mac OS hidden tricks? Anything? He's fairly devastated.
Also, some of his photos are on his Ipod Nano 2gb. How to get them off?
I plan on telling him about the magic and wonder of regular backups later on, but now isn't really the time.
