Unhappy Computer says it cannot open images in my photos - "file format is not supported"
My computer recently broke and i had all my photos transferred onto another computer. However some images won't open even though they are in .jpg format, as it comes up with "file format is not supported". My computer is windows vista if that helps

right click and look for ' Properties ', it might help find out what it is.

i recently uploaded some new pix to my computer, when i hover over them it says its a JPX file. like the person above no program on my computer will open it. At first the icon was a piece of paper with little squares on it. When i clicked on properties i changed it to be opened with picture viewer..now the icon is paper with a picture viewer symbol on it, but still wont open. Most of my pictures came out fine but 16-61 are JPX

Make a copy of one of the files then rename it with the .jpg extention, see if that works.

NinjaTurtle82, may I suggest that you open a new thread for your issue, because you're basically hijacking someone elses thread, plus you create confusion.

To the original poster; try opening the file with a different program, Google for "free image editor".
