Question Data Recovery After DOD Method Format???

I was wondering if anyone knew if it was possible to recover data from a drive that was formated using the DOD Method (zero's 3 X) than windows was installed again on top ??
I have tried 3 different software programs and all 3 have found nothing but system files and junk!
Not one of my Music, Picture or Word files have ever surfaced. I had almost 10GB of stuff! You'd think somrthing could have been recovered.
Anyway, if somebody knows a program or trick i could use to recover any of my 10GB of stuff without having to take it or ship it anywhere and pay a gazillion dollars for it to be done would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Rob

It is possible, but you will be paying an *** load of money and even then its not guaranteed and you still have to pay regardless. Honestly, I'm not even sure if its available for standard consumer use. Anyhow, contact a computer forensics center. I'm telling you now, this is VERY VERY expensive. As far as normal software, nope.
