I copied all of the photo files from a pc as I had to format the drive. I was looking at the dvd and cd and can't view the majority of the files which are labeled jpg but with the prefix of DSC. The only viewer I have besides windows is irfanview. Neither of these will open the files. Have I lost all the photos or is there a conversion software?

Most “Digital Still Cameras” assign the file names of the photos in this format: “DSC_nnnn.xxx”. The “nnnn” is a four-digit number and the “xxx” the file type, often “JPG”, but it can also be another extension. For example for Nikon “raw” files the extension is “NEF”. The first four characters can be changed in some cameras, but most just set the “DSC_” prefix.

Casio = CIMG
Fujifilm = DSCF
Leica = L1001
Nikon = user defined (DSC default)
Olympus = P305 (depends upon the model)
Panasonic = DSC
Pentax = IMGP
Samsung = SNC
Sigma = SDIM
Sony = DSC

Not a camera person myself, but I did run across this link below.
