    I recently bought a new 2gb Sandisk SD card for use in my Samsung D75 digital camera. I took about 10 pictures, and a few videos on it, all of which I was able to view perfectly at first. Later however, one of the pictures was giving the message "file error" when I tried to view it via the camera, and when I transferred it to the computer the JPEG file shows as a red 'x' on Microsoft Office Picture Manager.

    I have tried programs such as Pc Inspector File Recovery, ZAR etc, none of which worked. With JPEG snoop I was able to recover a blurred image, however am unsure how to continue working with this to restore the file to its original clarity.

    My question:

    1. Is there a way to recover this JPEG file using any sort of available program?
    2. Does anyone know how to use some of the more advanced aspects/commands in JPEG snoop, and think they know how I might be able to recover this image?
    3. Has anyone any other ideas of how this image may be recovered/restored?

    I will happily send the corrupt JPEG file if anyone thinks they may be able to assist. The picture is very important to me and I would hate to think I will not be able to retrieve it.

    Any help would be very much appreciated....

    Many thanks

    The largest card you can use in the Samsung D75 is 1 GB according to the web.

    Therefore the memory management will be totally screwed in how it has saved the data, you might have a fight on your hand retrieving it.
