I have recently purchased a new PC desktop.  I have tried to transfer my library of jpeg images taken with a Sony Mavica to the new system via CD ROM.  The two photoediting software systems on the new system will open some of the jpegs and not others for no reason that I can identify.  How do I successfully open ALL jpegs?

jeremyf7,

   try changing the extension of one of your .jpeg files to .jpg and try again... i'm curious if its just a file association mixup. Also, try opening the files from within your graphics program rather than directly from the explorer because that will give you a better "explanation" of the problem.

Cheers, Chris.

Sorry, the files are already in jpg extension.  I have also tried the latter suggestion to no avail.

Your jpeg pictures could be corrupted or somthing...or try converting them into another file type like, .jpg, .gif, etc. Or download some other Graphic editing software.

Another test for your jpg files .... try to insert into MSWord97 as follows.  On the menu, click insert, click [picture], click [from file], browse for the .jpg file.  You can then paste from Word to your graphic's program - I'm not sure what you will lose from the graphic.  You can also try to double-click the item in Word but it may convert it to a microsoft graphic.  If so, it will prompt you first.

hmmmmmmm ...

Do you have Corel Draw or know someone who does.  Corel Draw will import graphic files such as .jpg's (file, import) and then export as a jpg or another format (file, export, selected object, choose a format, then the parameters for it - a little complicated but not bad).  I've found this method to work when little else works.  Corel Paint will also import such files.  In Win3.1 days, that's what would open when I double-click a jpg file from the old file manager when I didn't know how to access the graphic.  Speaking of which - have you simply tried to double-click the file in Windows Explorer.  Perhaps there is another program on your system that .jpg is associated with.

Here's hoping ...
