    Big Problem!!

    Overseas photos, burned onto CD in Morocco and XD card overwritten
    with new photos.
    However, when I get home I find that some of them won't open. Message
    from photoshop says "Could not complete your request because a JPEG
    marker segment is too short (the file may be truncated or
    Some of these 120 files show thumbnails but still won't open.
    I've tried downloading software (PC Inspector Smart Recovery) but that
    won't work either.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to get this sorted? Any
    suggestionss appreciated.

    Tried Irfanview? Sometimes different programs do better.

    Also try this:

    I would suggest trying some other software. How do they work when you try
    to load them into a viewer such as quickshow? How about trying GIMP - it's
    a free image manipulation program available for MS, MAC, and Linux.

    In additon to trying different programs if you have access to other CD
    drives you may find one that can read the disc. Obviously copy all files
    immediately to some other medium.

    'Smart Recovery' is the wrong program. 'PC Inspector File Recovery' is
    the one for recovering unreadable files.

    But did you first overwrite the deleted files on the card as did the op.

    Are you and Gummo roommates, the op overwrote the sd card or so he
    stated. Nothing is going to recover overwritten files (Oh, please don't
    reply with some garbage about data recovery strategies which are
    probably non-applicable to flash cards, which nobody in this group could
    implement anyway and that were not very helpful with the Nixon tapes,
    somewhat less of a challenge).

    Just a few, thankfully. I suggested this program because I wasn't sure if
    he meant that his card was completely overwritten and, if not, it was
    definitely worth trying or, at least, worth having for the future. The
    Recovery Manager worked where PCI failed.

    Sarcasm noted, but you're the gummo, m'boy. The OP stated:

    "Overseas photos, burned onto CD in Morocco and XD card overwritten
    with new photos.
    However, when I get home I find that some of them won't open."

    That means the *new* photos won't open, not the earlier ones, which he
    burned to CD.

    My statement about PC Inspector programs is right. Provided he hasn't
    overwritten the 'new' photos, he should be able to recover most of them.
    Did you get out of the wrong side of your bed today, or did the missus
    turn you down? Your attitude stinks.
