I've researched this problem extensively - even downloaded three different types or recovery software (which I deem too expensive for the few photos I'm trying to salvage). The photos were taken on a digital camera. I was using a 1 GB disk (maybe too big for as old as the camera is).The thing that is really confusing me is that I can view all the photos in Windows Explorer in extra large size. They are as clear as a bell. I read of other people solving the problem by opening the corrupted jpegs in MSPaint, but that does not work. Are there any new theories on how to get around this problem?
