Well, go to 'File -> Open', at the bottom it will say 'Select File Type', click and choose 'Raw image data', then a screen will come up. At first the preview will be messy, this is because raw doesn't have a header and you don't know the dimensions. Change the width until you get an image, then change the height to a value such that there is nothing cut off, in this case 320 x 200. That's it, now click open.

i work with odd image formats all the time and OpenEV's "import raw" and gHex and UFraw are not showing any hope

the files on the orig card will be needed
the file IMG_2750.JPG is not showing any singes of life

According to the OP, the images were corrupt on the flash card from the outset. Then they were copied to CD (before the lawsuit). After reviewing all of this, I would now put the odds of recovery at less than 1%.

I'm quite sure that they are jpegs, just very corrupt, perhaps beyond repair within any reasonable amount of time.

1) Because they came with other jpegs and have the .jpg extension, no camera would add that if it were some other type.

2) Run 'ent' on them, then on other jpegs, the output is very similar. Run it on .raw or other types of files and the output is different. Admittedly, it could also be png, but then why would have a .jpg ending ?

I agree---the only reason for doubt is the circumstances. They were all from one SD card which was "corrupted". The photographer was new to the camera.

What is "ent"? Pacman does not find this---nor does Google.....
