It sounds like the processor for the camera is messing up the picture. I suggest that you take the camera in to a Wolf Camera or any other camera oriented store

JPEG doesn't show picture

The pictures should be called xxxxxx.jpg. These are not the thumbnails. Your computer can always make thumbnails, but the jpg files should have a name and at least some content.
If you can't view the pictures, please don't delete the pictures on the card and please don't format the card.
Again try to copy the pictures to your computer, to a different folder and use the file browser to see how the pictures look.
If you deleted the pictures don't make any pictures on the card and use a recover program to retrieve the pictures. Almost every memory card firm does have such a program.

On these sites you find software to recover files (pictures and more) from a "damaged" memory card or even from a hard drive.
free software to recover your files on a memory card: with free trail with free evaluation version
Some programs will show the deleted files, but only recover a few files. If you want to recover more files they want you to pay. If so, try another program on the list.

Downloading to computer

Sounds like a Vista or Picasso problem. Suggest you use explorer to copy photos directly from camera to a folder on your computer, then look at them and see if they are OK, if so, it is a Picasso problem. If the same, is likely a Vista problem. If still in doubt. Take memory stick to a photo lab and load on their system and see what you get.

Picture distortion

Check your battery, if your battery was low it may cause picture distortion. ^_^
