    hi need a bit of help?

    due to a windows install issue i had to use data recovery software to retrive some info, part of it was a load of pictures.

    the strange is i recovered all the pic fine and they all show as thumb nails, but when i try to open or slide show some of them work fine the rest come up with msgs like preview failed or unsupported file or unknow file header tried a few different pic viewer programs but always same result, checked properties for pics and they all say there jpeg.

    any :confused: ideas?

    corrupt images thats the only answer, Sorry but you may have some luck doing a google for an image rebuilder or performing a chkdsk on the drive to see if thats the cause.
