Do you remember what format you saved them to?
Are all your drives up to date?
Any yellow shield signs in Device Manager?

Do it from Windows Explorer as long as there jepg's you don't need a third party prog. Just copy and paste, drag and drop.

Drag some of the files to you C drive. You might create a new folder for this say TempImages. Right click the jpeg and make sure they are not read only. Also check the date modified and make sure it is not in the future. Sounds daft but important!
