I have a folder containing about 60 photos all of which are less than 100kb in size. About half were copied and pasted to the folder from another hard drive. When I double click on the folder it opens and displays all the photos as thumbnails on the bottom. However, double clicking on some individual photos to view as larger image only displays the message "No Preview Available" whilst others openin this way all the time. I've also tried viewing as a slideshow. Again, some are viewable whilst others are simply blank screens.
Is the problem due to transferring the JPEG Photo images from one hard drive to another? If so how can this be corrected?
Hi, it is possible that some jpeg's may have got corrupted during the copy from one drive to the other. It is also possible that some may have at some time been deleted, even though thumbnails still appear for the deleted ones.
I would try to again copy one of the jpeg's that is not working, onto a floppy drive or usb portable media - and then see if it can be opened. If not, then I would think that they have gone to that great jpeg black hole in the sky, never to be seen again.
