Question about Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera
This sounds like corrupted files. Are you downloading these pictures using your camera (ie through a USB cable attached to your camera)? If so, may I suggest using a USB card reader instead. If already using a card reader, suggest buying another one as it may have gone bad.
You plug the SD card into the card reader, and then plug the reader into the USB port of your computer. It essentially turns your SD card into a hard drive that you simply copy and paste or drag and drop the files from onto your computer's hard drive. It's very simple, no software involved.
Card readers are much faster in downloading files and are much less likely to incur file errors. For these reasons most (if not all) professional photographers use card readers instead of downloading directly from the camera. Card readers are also very inexpensive. Here's an example of a nice cheap one. Try it, see if it fixes your problem. If so, then consider getting a better one later:
