    if you know the name of the file, you can locate it and open it using another software.

    open the file using PS elements and save as a different filename and a different location.
    maybe on the desktop, in a new folder called "thank goodness"
    then pop in a blank cd and copy the "thank goodness" folder that you just created into the CD-R icon and burn it.

    look like a currupt file, try another software and do a save as.

    at this point of time what is important is to rescue the file
    so anything that can open and save would do

    The file should be located in Pictures->iPhoto Library, you can copy out the file from there.

    why don't you try to burn the files onto a cd and use another computer to open and save-as...
