Due to a hard drive crash, I am trying to recove photos from my camera's memory card. 40% of the files claim to be unsuported JPG. How can I fix them?

My Mac Hard Drive has crashed and I've lost the last a months worth of my baby's photos (everything else is backed up. Given that it's only the 5th month, these photos mean a lot to me. I have attempted to recover photos from the digital camera (canon powershot S30), but unfortunately most have been deleted. The Doctor Data Recovery program has left me with 100+ files that when I try to open them, I get an unsuported JPG error message. Can anyone please advise of a better way to retrieve deleted photos from a memory card or advise how one fixes the unsuproted JPG file issue. Currently I'm working on a PC that only has the Microsoft Windows XP fax and image viewer.
By the way, the G4 hard Drive is no longer an option, as it becomes the property of Apple once it's taken out of my machine in their service center.
