I've copied over plenty of photos from my phone to my computer with no issues. This last time when I tried all the photos are unable to be open. The sizes are around 18gb each and when opening in microsoft photos it gives an error that the file format isn't recognized even though it's jpg. When opening in photoshop it says the jpeg marker length is too short. Has anyone ran into this issue or know of a program to try to fix the images? Unfortunately I didn't sync up with google drive or samsung so it could be a lot of photos lost.
That's strange, jpg files should totally be recognizable by your phone. Do you have a Google account? If so, are you able to upload them to your Google Drive or Google photos and sync them to your phone? Also, could you try emailing them to your Gmail account, opening the email on the phone, then seeing if you can view/download it?
Have you checked my suggestions to see if they help? Please let us know.
