    I got back from holiday early this morning, then I did something very clever...

    I put my Canon Ixus 40 in the washer with my clothes

    So now my camera is kanckered but I've managed to copy/paste all images from the memory card. However some of these images have thumbnails but when you try to view them fully it says 'Drawing Failed' Others have no thumbnail & also can't be viewed.

    They all transferred over though & are all giving values of size etc in properties, is there any other way of me trying to salvage these photos that I can't currently view?

    Cheers

    Have you tried running PC Inspector Smart Recovery on the knack'd memory card.

    Did wonders for me recovering pics from a beer soaked XD card, only 3 out 40ish shots couldn't be recovered.
