Re: Corrupt JPEG. Help need!

Bob, on reviewing the image more closely, I realize that there appears to be half of one image and half of another image. Usually the camera takes one shot, processes the file and then takes the next shot. It seems more probable to me that whatever application transferred the images from CF to hard drive may have gotten itself out of sync and offset the files. If the rest of the images are the same, you may be able to cut off each half and stitch it together with its coorect other half. Let us know how it goes.
Regards, Murray

Re: Corrupt JPEG. Help need!

mistermonday may be onto something here with the two picture observation. Not only did my bad judgement in this case get me to doing a "move" instead of a "copy", I pressed my luck because I was pressed for time and started TWO moves from differenent subfolders of the chip at the same time. Theortically this should work, and I do multiple "copy" operations often. However, it would be interesting if the native Windows code to support this was overtaxed to the point of combining different parts from the concurrently running move operations. I'm not convinced yet, and I've gotten buried in work so I'll be exploring more, and will report back for everyone's benefit. In the meantime, other insights are always appreciated.

Thanks,

Bob

Try Graphic Converter - http://www.lemkesoft.com/public/cont...cGlkPTg4_.html - its a 'free' app that can open almost anything. You just have to wait a while while it starts up

If you have not used the memory card since the move you could try an image recovery software.

Re: Corrupt JPEG. Help need!

Thanks for the tip Juergen. I actually have not used it and did create an image. I've been so swamped with work issues the last two days, I haven't circled back with more experiments yet, but this weekend hope to make some leap forward.

Markzebra: I think Graphic Converter needs to run on a Mac from what I'm seeing? Lucky for me I just bought one for my daughter heading to college. Will try and report back.

Thanks, Bob

Drive Savers is really good at recovery, but it can be very costly. If you are a member of PPA, you get a huge discount.

Adrionis,

what is the solution that worked for you? I'm having the same problem with pictures being greyed out and having a few normal lines at the top of the image. Please share.

Thanks,

Fred.

Re: Corrupt JPEG. Help need!

Since you didn't use the memory stick since you've moved the file, I would try a file recovery software on the memory card. Whenever you move a file from a USB stick, hard-drive, or other media, it doesn't actually erase or even move the file. Instead, it simply erases the file allocation table entry of the file on the original media, and copies it to the new media. Therefore, it is more than likely (almost guaranteed) to be fully intact on your memory card... as long as you didn't use the memory card since. I would give something like this a try: http://www.cardrecovery.com/

Re: Corrupt JPEG. Help need!

Hello

Not sure if this application is of any use, but I managed to recover
some lost files on a harddrive I formatted. As stated it's best if you do
not save files down to the drive you are trying to recover,
Oh and stating the obvious do not recover to the same drive.
