Hi. It may be that the reader in the laptop is not able to read the Canon format. Does your camera have a USB or Firewire cable connection that you can use to transfer the images to your laptop? I would try that first. If you said yes to format on your computer when you tried to read it, you may have erased any pictures that were on it.
