Corrupt JPEG Files

I am trying to open some jpeg images and they keep coming up with the following comment " cannot open <filename.jpg> because an unknown or invalid jpeg marker type is found.

These photos were taken on a Kodak digital camers and are rather important.

Would appreciate some help in trying to recover them from the system as the memory card for the camera has been stolen.

One way around this problem sometimes is to try opening the images in a web browser window.  If they show up, right click and save them in a new folder.  There aren't very many options.  It sounds like the data on your camera's memory card may have been corrupted.

Here's a direct link to the software suggested in the above post... it looks like the evaluation version is limited to recovering images up to 200K in size... depending on the resolution of your pictures, this may or may not help you.

I have seen this issue many times, what application are you trying to open the jpg files in?  There are several versions of jpeg which have different compression and header markers.

The digital camera you have should only be using a fairly basic version but products such as microsoft photo editor aren't very good with jpg files.  Something like adobe photoshop will do the job on it, or photoshop elements (the cheap version of its big brother).  Also worth trying www.download.com and look for image viewers on there, bound to be something that will cope with them.  Failing all that, then yes the jpegs could well be corrupted, but its not a common sight.

I have the same problem.  My pictures are on the hard drive and I have had no success on finding anything that opens them or fixes them.  Any more thoughts would be appreciated.
