Sorry, Mike, but I don't think there is any way to fix a corrupt JPEG. Once the file is damaged, there's no way to put the pieces back together. You can repair a program because you replace the broken parts, but you cannot replace the broken parts of an image file without a backup of the file.

I know this is wierd, but i had some JPEGs that look like the one I sent in here, and when I ran the scandisk utility, some of them were repaired... And I have also notice that for the picture with the green spot on it, if I view it in Thumbnails, the picture is perfect ...!!!

The reason it looks OK in thumbs is because thumbs is sampling only a part of the data in the file. There is probably a single bit that's wrong somewhere in the file. If you had some way to go in there and change that tiny portion of the file, you might repair it. I have some tiny thing niggling in my memory about repairing jpg's from many years ago, but I think it's lost. However, a little research brought up a site that offers to repair jpeg's and save them as bitmaps.

Since I haven't tried this myself, I cannot say whether it is good or bad. If you decided ot try it, make sure to use a copy of your damaged jpeg file to test, so that you still have the copy and can use other programs or repairs with it.

Where are you getting these photos from if your hard drive failed?
Are you still using the faulty hard drive?
Have you tried doing a Scandisk(Error Check) in Safe Mode with "Automatic..." and "Scan for..." ticked, on the faulty drive? That may be able to repair your files.

Hi,
When I formatted my C:, i moved all my zip file and all my pictures in my faulty hard drive (i did not at that time) .. Since i knew my hard drive was faulty .. all my zip file and jpeg was corrupted ... I dont care about my zip files .. but for my pictures .... i do ... I am not using my faultly hard drive anymore ... I get a new one instead. I will try to run a Scandisk in safe mode with all the option you pointed to me. I will post again later ..

Thank

Mike

I don't think that will help if it's not the original hard drive. Your going to have to look for a software repair. Sorry I cannot help. :thumbsup:
