How can I recover the jpeg files and create multiple jpeg files using c?

The signatures 0xff 0xd8 0xff 0xe0 or
0xff 0xd8 0xff 0xe1 should be in the first 4 bytes of every jpeg file.  The input file is card.raw.  I  tried to attach it, but it's too large.

Okay,

I'm not sure exactly what your question is...

The c code you posted looks like you intend to open a file called "card.raw", and it almost looks like you want to write that file as a jpg, because you've declared outptr as "test.jpg".

However, no where do you seem to convert the data you receive into the the JPG file format.

A JPG is not a bitmap; they're completely different data formats.

You'll need to convert the headers to the correct formats, and use some sort of image conversion library routine (or roll your own) to save the file as a JPG.

Also, you'll need to manipulate the filename that you're writing to if you intend to write more than one JPG at a time.

Could you please give me some sample of code of how to do that?  I agree with your design approach.  Thank you.

You can use this library of routines:

http://filters.sourceforge.net/

Among the routines there are JPG reader/writers...  you shouldn't have any trouble with it.
