To repair corrupt JPEG images you must use software which is designed to repair JPEG file format only. First use free version of software, you can see preview of all images that can be repaired by that software. I will recommend this software

Hey Brenth73,
There are a number of programs that can do this. What you can do is search the internet for photo recovery programs, and you should get multiple results. Some of these programs are free and some come at a charge. I would try the free ones first, because just because one program doesn't recover your images it doesn't mean another program won't. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

JPEG doesn't show picture


Paula,
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:
www.cardrecovery.com
www.wondershare.net with free trail
www.cardrescue.com with free evaluation version
http://www.memorycard.freedatarecoverysoftware.org
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.

Unable to read memory card after dropping camera


And you think that is the only problem?
The first thing I should try, is remove the memory card and read it on my computer. Use an external card reader.
If the card still holds pictures, reinsert the memory card and try again.
I don't know if the camera was on, while you dropped it. Because if on the right moment the camera was still writing to the memory it hit the floor, the complete file system can be corrupted.
If you can't read pictures on the external card reader, you should first try to recover all the pictures, because there is a reasonable chance, the pictures cam be recovered, even if the file system is corrupted.
Some errors on memory cards or pictures can be corrected with some recovery programmes, but not every error can be corrected. free software to recover your files on a memory card:
http://www.memorycard.freedatarecoverysoftware.org
www.cardrecovery.com www.wondershare.net with free trail
www.cardrescue.com with free evaluation version

If there are no important pictures, or no pictures at all on the card, you can skip the recover part. Just format the card with FAT 32. When placed back in the camera, do a format with the camera.

Success. I hope this is all damage on your camera, but ????

Mac says Jpeg files are "unrecognized format"


The memory card may have corrupted. You may need to try using recovery software to download your photos. Try the mac links provided in this article. Once you've recovered your photos, and backed them up on your computer, format your memory card in your camera, using your camera's format feature (look for it in the menus).

Some shots on review come up INCOMPATABLE JPEG


It might not be able to display some photos (different sizes or compression) from a different camera or jpeg files copied onto the card from a computer.
If the all the pictures are from the camera then the card could be corrupted. Try recovery software such as the free : http://www.piriform.com/recuva if some files can not be read. Copy the pictures onto a computer then format the card in the camera to erase it.

System Error " 32.01". Many pictures are corrupted, some recovered. Any ideas of recovering the corrupted files??? For the Sony cyber-shot 7.2 megapix camera.


You should try some photo recovery software to rescue the files on your camera card, here are some you may rely on. Both programs can also recover videos and music.
Photo Recovery Software (for Windows)
Mac Photo Recovery Software (for Mac OS X)

Be careful: Before your pictures are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the card in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

Kodak easyshare dx6490 jpeg problem: Jpeg format corrupted


a jpeg is not a standard photo file. You want to set it for jpg. Take the USB hub out of the connection. Connect the camera or card reader directly to the USB port.

When i try to view my pictures on screen is says invalid jpeg?.. how can i fix that


Sounds as if the picture file is corrupted. You will have to delete this one, I'm afraid. To stop this happening in the future ALWAYS reformat your card after you have downloaded the pictures. The 'Format' facility will be in the menuing system somewhere - probably under 'System' or soemthing like that.

Camera Displaying Incompatible JPEG File


Sounds like the card has become corrupted. Did you format it in your camera when you first got it? If not, what you're experiencing eventually happens. Take no more pics until you've recovered any photos that you may be missing, take the card out of the camera. Here's some freeware photo recovery software that should be what you're looking for:

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/recovering-those-accidentally-lost.html

You will need to use a flash card reader with this software. If you don't have one, get one, they're cheap:

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_st?keywords=card+reader&rs=172282&page=1&rh=n%3A172282%2Ck%3Acard+reader&sort=price

Finally AFTER you've recovered your photos, recommend formatting your card in your camera. Look in the "tools" menu for the selection that shows your card's memory capacity, and select it. Then follow the prompts to format the card. Select "Low Level" format if asked. Note that THIS WILL ERASE YOUR CARD, so again make sure that you have first backed up your photos on your computer.

File error when viewing pics


Your pictures appear to have been corrupted.
Here is what you can try:
copy the files from your card directly to the computer HD. Then look at the files with your computer system browser, and choose the full view, or in Windows it would be VIEW/ List or details . If the names are missing any letters, then simply do this:
Make a copy of the original file and rename it to something like:

I_G123B,jg (original renamed file...note that I added the B so the name is not the same as the original) to IMG123.jpg . Once the file is renamed to what may have been originally, you will be able to view the picture again.
Some times the corrupted name may be even more confusing. The main thing to remember is to make sure you have a .jpg or .JPG at the end so that the computer system will recognize the file format and be able to read the file. The way you name what is before the period ( .jpg) is not that important, but should reflect the original file for your own information.
This file corruption is more common than one may think. I have seen it on Nikons, Sonys, Canons.
And others.

Try all three of the listed programs, especially the third one from VaioSoft. But yes some of the pictures may be corrupted. Not much that you can do then. Also, if you format the card you may no longer be able to retrieve them. Here's the link to the VaioSoft recovery program:
