I have a mobile phone which I've taken hundreds of photos & the
photos are stored in the mobile's microSD card.

For some unknown fault of the mobile phone (not due to accidental
erasure), the photos are all gone.

What software can I use or methods I can try to attempt to recover
the photo files from the microSD ?

I have a USB to SD/microSD adaptor for reading the microSD from
my PC / laptop

You could try Redo Backup.  It is a backup/recovery program that runs from a Live CD so you will need to download the iso, burn it, and then boot from it.  http://redobackup.org

There are number of softwares that can do that for you but here are some of the best ones :

Stellar Phoenix
Power Data Recovery
Recuva


Try any of the above and you will get your data back IFF it hasn't been overridden. BUt i ll suggest you to use one of the 1st two.

Thanks !!
