    Urgent

    I have some very valuable photos that I took a while back, I've kept them on my harddrive until my last reformat where I transferred all the pictures onto a removable USB HD.

    Something must have went wrong during the transfer process, because now when I copy the folder containing the pictures back, I can only view the first 3 photos out of approximately 30 pictures. The non-working photos maintains their file size, has the .JEPG file extension, has no thumbnail view, and when I try to click on them I would get the "No preview available" message.

    Any suggestions to solving this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Have you tried opening them on a different computer? If it doesn't work then, it might just be that your files are corrupted. You could try the demos of JPEG recovery programs like this one:

    I tried to open the images on another computer and still no luck. I also ran the recovery program on the corrupted photos, but I would just get these messages:

    1. Jpeg detected. (that's good...)

    2. No errors found. (I beg to differ...)

    3. No recovery completed. (X_X).

    Further help please? These pictures are very important to me, thanks again!

    I'm even willing to pay money for a professional program to repair these photos. Any more ideas?

    if self-remedy doesn't work, you might have to try get professional help, like in real life . I don't know what the story is in Canada, but in the UK, you can take things to PCWorld (pc superstore) and get them to fix stuff. They could also probably to data recovery and stuff so if you can't figure anything out, maybe thats where to try.
