What can I use to view\repair corrupted jpg files? I am trying to recover images from a corrupted SD card, and the tools I used gave me some images that I can't open. I have tried opening them with IrfanView, xnView, the GIMP, MS Paint, and Paint.net; but none of these programs worked. Is there a tool that can view corrupted jpg files?

If it's an option to retry the recovery, try using PhotoRec to recover your files. It is a companion program to the TestDisk data recovery software. I used it and it works wonderfully -- I didn't see a single corrupted image that it recovered, and it recovered more than Recuva did.
