Hi Everyone,

I'm new here and not sure if this is the appropriate forum to post this question, so please let me know if it needs to be moved.

I am using XP Home and am having a problem with some of my JPEGS.

In the "My Pictures" folder, I have a number of sub-folders, all of which display 4 thumbnail previews of the pictures contained within. When I open a couple of my folders, however, the JPEG thumbnails within show up as the generic JPEG sunset icon. When I click on them and try to open them with Windows Fax and Picture Viewer, I get a message that says "No Preview Available" and I can't access the pictures. I've tried using both XNView and Irfanview, but neither will open them, either.

All the pictures show an appropriate size in the folder view and all say they were modified on 2/1/2009, which worries me because that was Superbowl Sunday and I did not touch my computer or pictures that day.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
