can't open recovered files from a fried hard drive

I've used Easy Recovery on a fried drive and now have the files I want back; Problem, most of the files - pictures mostly, I can't open.  Is there a recovery program that can repair these files that I gave a huge sigh of relief to have back and Now I'm sweating bullets again because I can't open them.

I would suggest running spinrite on the drive instead of easyrecovery. I generally receive better results by running spinrite first and then running easyrecovery if necessary. Easyrecovery usually does a poor job on its own, but I have not been able to find anything better yet.

CDCCTECH   You rock man.   I've been in this situation before but it wan't critical that I get the data back; more experimental than anything else. This time I had to retrieve it; and Spinrite made the drive useable enough to do that.  I tried Norton Disk Doctor before and that was a waste of time.j
Thanks again
