Does the photos open successfully on any other machine that you have access to? In other words, if you copy them onto a USB stick (or burn to a CD, or copy across the network...) and try to open them on a different machine, does that work?

If not, it is likely that the files are corrupted in some way.
Can you see their EXIF data? Do their sizes roughly match other JPGs (that can be opened) created by the same camera at the same resolution settings? They'll never be exactly the same, but if "normal" JPGs are somewhere say around 3MB and these files are consistently 50KB, that's an obvious truncation issue.
