I used a 32GB SD-Card for my Camera, some of the photos are corrupt now. Image Size is shown correctly but I'm unable to see the picture.

More than half of photo is in gray.
Some of my pictures can not open anymore.
I have a corrupted picture file that I need to hand in.
I took few photos and saved them to my hard disk. My computer had a virus and my photos were deleted by the virus. I recovered those photos but now they are damaged.
My Pictures were captured through my phone (samsung wave y), and the next day some of my very much precious pictures were just showing thumbnails. I tried so many softwares for their recovery but did not get them back.
Everytime I click on a photo to view it, it keeps saying 'Unable to open this photo The file may be unsupported, corrupted or damaged'. I want to be able to view my photo's again so I hope this website will help with that.
