Recovered Iphoto library damaged?

Long story short, I was able to recover a deleted Iphoto library off a hard drive, and I installed the latest version of Iphoto, but the library isnt recognized as a library. I opened the package contents, and everything is in there, but none of the files will open, it says that they're damaged or a file format not recognized. Are these photos gone for good, or are there any programs to "fix" them?

Bumping this up... someone replied to it, but the post was deleted, I'm guessing it was because it was a spam post for a program. Most programs I've tried only recover stuff, but none of them are able to "fix" broken jpg's.

It's likely that without expensive third party data retrieval, then yes they may well be gone. BUT, you can still see them, and thats's a start.

Some free stuff is available. Do you have Time Machine backups? This would be the easy way to restore your lost pictures....But you have modified hardware, so I guess not.....I can't vouch for the free app (Disk Drill) here, but it might be worth a try, it say's it can recover the attached information from files that have been damaged.

You have only one option that is Time Machine backup restore. Iphoto creates its own library folder and I donít think so any program can recover it because the deleted data do not go into the trash or stays on hard drive, it performs a permanent deletion.
