I took numerous photos all of which I can open on the camera itself and look at, but when I put the card into the card-reader of my PC I am only able to open the first half of the photos. I can't open the second half of the files. While they have the .jpg ending all software I tried says its not a .jpg-file and it can't be opened.

Re: Can't open photos on PC
Take all the images off the card into a folder.
Put card back in camera and format it.
Run some more shots - we are trying to prove the card is OK.
Meanwhile go on line to www.konvar.com and download PC Inspector. install the programs and run the 'dud' files through it- you may be lucky.
Coming bakc to the Camera - it seems a batch of files corrupted in the taking- which is at fault?

Did you take the Pictures from a Camera or from a Mobile? I hope you should have got them through one of these, camera or mobile :-). If so, please remove the memory card from the card reader and insert it into the Camera or Mobile and check whether they are still readable or not. If you find no problem, I would suspect the usb port on the computer has a faulty or I would also suspect the Card Reader. First try the memory card on the device where you took the pictures and verify that it's still working without any problem and make sure all files can be viewed.
I would also suggest you to transfer the photos from the device itself, instead of using the Card Reader (if this is possible, this is the best option).
Or you can try with the Card reader on another Computer.
If so then i suggest you purchase a card reader,
take the card out of the camera and put it into the the card reader,
plug that directly into your PC and transfer the photo's to your PC.
you don't have them on a memory card
but on the camera's internal memory, put in a memory card and transfer
the photo's to that using the camera's menu. Then you can use the card
reader to get your photo's on your PC.
Card readers are fairly
inexpensive and can cost anything from $2 - $40 (£1 - £25-30) Please
post back if you require anymore help or advice. Regards.
When I download my photos to my pc I always use a card reader. I take the card from my camera and put it in the reader. These can be purchased for around $20 at most stores that sell any kind of electronics. I connect the card reader to the pc via a usb port. Open up My computer and it will show you a new volumn or something like that. Click on it and it will open you photos. You can then copy and paste them into a folder on your PC. Hope this helps.
I have a SanDisk 8G SD card that worked in my camera, but my card reader would not read, so I could not put the on my computer. I put the SD card back in the camera and could still view all of my photos, so I ran a cable from my camera to the computer (one end of the cable was USB and the other end was something smaller that would fit into the port on my camera, I don't know what it is called). The computer was able to read all of my photos through my camera, so I downloaded everything through the camera to the computer.
