Recovering Corrupt Images

I had a small memory card full of photos, thinking that I'd already copied them to my PC I deleted everything on there. I then realised that I'd deleted the photos without copying so I didn't use the card and straight away used a programs to recover the files on it.

I managed to recover all of the files, but many of the images are corrupt. I can see them as a low res thumbnail in Picasa (my default photo viewer) but as soon as it goes to refine the image or zoom in it gives up and renders a gray square with a few lines at the top.

Some of the data it obviously still there to be shown as a thumbnail, but I can't view it.

Does anyone know of any programs that I can view the images with (even at a low res) without it giving up and showing me a gray square?

Thanks in advance.

What is the program you used for the recovery? Although I can't really help you, beause I have no experience with that, did you try resaving it or something? I see this part of forum is hardly visited, probably was bad idea to ask about my problem as well here.

I used Recover my Files to recover the images from the memory card and I've tired using other programs to do that same thing, however they've all had the same result so far. I haven't been able to open the images with anything yet for it to allow me to resave them, but if I find something that'll open them I'll give it a try.

There's one of the images. It's just a picture of a shed taken through a window. I could see that well enough on the tiny Picasa thumbnail, but as soon as you try to look at it properly Picasa just gives you a grey square. - Windows default view doesn't even get that far, it just gives you 'drawing failed' error.

I'm sceptical whether the software will work seeing as other photo recovery software didn't, but I'll give it a go anyway.

Tried using the software, no luck. It recovered less images that the previous software I used.
