cant download images..decode error etc

I am having trouble downloading images from my memory card via the camera (pentax k-x) to computer via usb hookup. I tried photoshop and it says the filed is damaged or is a format that cannot be included in the organizer. I tried irfanview and it says decode error , quanitization table 0x00 was not defined. Prior to this card I had trouble formatting the memory card so bought this one. This one formatted perfectly. Guess I will first buy another memory card .. I have to get px off this card before I can try to reformat it and that is the problem. Also I get a lot of px that say "This image cannot be displayed "on camera screen.. after taking.

Did you format the card in your camera? Sounds like the data on there is corrupt for some reason or another. If the camera can't play your photos, then there's not much you can do, I don't think.
