Recovered files problem

  hatrickj 10:09 17 Sep 2010

I recovered a number of jpg and avi files from a corrupted SD card ( a cheapo) for a friend and saved to my external hard disk. None would preview or open.

However opening with Irfanview created two error messages.

I appear to have saved the files incorrectly.

How do I go about remedying the disaster, preferably with a freeware product?

Are the saved files much smaller than they should be?

Perhaps you have not been able to see the original images at all and all you have is a reference the originals, but not the original data.

First make a copy of the picture files and experiment with the copies.

The first error seems simple, change the extension to .wmf as per the Irfanview message and see what happens.
