I have found I can drag the images to Firefox and then drag them straight to irfanview, CTRL-s and enter. I have made good progress so far and all the files I have processed so far are recognized by Interview as they should be.

I used Notepad++ to edit the above post and some how it became double spaced please be patient with me I am not used to this type of thread...spoiled by BBcode.

---------------------------
IrfanView
---------------------------
C:\Documents and Settings\Me\Desktop\Zdzislaw Beksinski - 6.PNG : Can't read
file header !

Unknown file format or file not found !
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------
NO NOT OK
so here I am

I am having a very similar problem. Irfanview and FreeCommander can't touch two folders of image files. Some are PNG some Jpeg. The folders properties customise tab is able to see the files and I can choose an image for the folders thumbnail.

At first I though these files where alternate Data streams but Sysinternals Streams found non.
.. used notepad to open one and it did. Notepad is able to deal with ADSs so Hmm...
.. used Paint and it opened the image fine.
.. saved the image with paint to a PNG file (it was Jpeg) irfanview will not open it.
.. edited the file with paint, Saved it and it still will not open with irfanview.
.. used Firefox to open the file... Its as pretty as can be? Firefox is Multiplatform...

I believe these files are forked some how.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fork_(filesystem))
The data is there. Thumbnails are visible and paint reads them fine. I can even edit the file in paint...

I did it. I right clicked the image, opened it in Firefox just now and chose copy image from the context menu

.. Then pasted it into a blank irfanview screen.
.. Saved the image to a new file an now it is fine.

I will try and find the difference between the saved copy that works and the original that is defying Irfanview and FreeCommander. Perhaps these Images originated on an apple Macintosh machine...
referance:

I am using windows XP... The files where transferred by P2P so they may have been saved without proper NTFS processing some how.

I am using a lot of brand names in this post and it is probably to long but I am not trying to sell anything so please don't ban me. I am just happy to have figured this out this far and I can save my files.

But it means that my problem is not related to the OP.

I used the console to see why I could save the file in the same directory whit a file named the same.

C:\Documents and Settings\My account\desktop\Drawings>dir *.bmp
Volume in drive C is Sata00-01
Volume Serial Number is XXXX-XXXX

Directory of C:\Documents and Settings\My account\desktop\Drawings

07/28/2010 06:51 AM 823,254 Zdzislaw Beksinski - 8.bmp
07/05/2010 09:55 PM 34,897 Zdzislaw Beksinski - 8.bmp
2 File(s) 858,151 bytes
0 Dir(s) 47,873,495,040 bytes free

C:\Documents and Settings\My account\desktop\Drawings>

Notice the "l", there's is the rub. The odd little mark in the "l" They are not named the same.

Zdzislaw Beksinski was a renowned Polish painter, photographer, and sculptor..."In Polish, L is used to distinguish historical dark (velarized) L from clear L."

I do not have any the Polish input language installed so many of my programs are unable to find files with Polish characters in the file name.

I an not able to delete my posts above. Perhaps some one else out there has this problem. It may be a help to them?
