"This file type is not supported"
"Windows Photo Viewer can't open this picture"
"The file is not an image"

... or something along those lines. Or, it may be opened with jpeg artifacts. These are all cases which point to a file/s being damaged.

If none of the above helps to open the image, you should use professional software to repair JPEG files.

FREE Ways to Repair damaged JPEG files

1. Rename damaged files

One of the easiest ways to recover files is to rename them without changing the file extension (JPEG). Save the image under a new name and try to access it again.

2. Convert JPEG to a different format

Also, inaccessible JPEG files may be successfully opened using another file format. For example, you can try to transform JPEG to JPG. It's actually the same format but spelled differently. However, some photo viewers recognize only three extension letters, so it may help. Open the file with editing software that supports the extension and select 'File', then 'Save as'. Here, choose JPEG and save it. You can also try converting JPEG files into PSD format using a free online converter.

3. Open pictures in Microsoft Paint

Keep in mind, there might just be a program error. So, try to open the damaged photo/s using another type of image viewer like Microsoft Paint. If that doesn't work, we recommend you try to open the image using a web browser.


Try to access the damaged JPEG file after running CHKDSK. This fixes problems caused by bad sectors on the drive. Follow these steps to execute CHKDSK:
1. Connect a memory card with JPEG files to your computer.
2. Press Windows + 'R' key, type 'CMD' and press OK.
3. Enter CHKDSK (drive letter) / f in the command window, for example, 'CHKDSK h:/f'.
4. After the process is complete, restart your computer and try to access the JPEG files again.

5. Command-line repair

Here is another method to repair a damaged JPEG file using the command-line (CMD):
1. Go to the Windows start button, search 'CMD' and run it as an administrator with the help of a right-click.
2. Enter 'sfc' or 'scan' in the command prompt and press 'Enter'.
3. Remember, it takes time to scan and repair damaged images in the system.
4. Then, reboot the computer.
