Problems opening jpg images from a mac, on a PC

A friend received some jpg photos on a thumb drive.  The sender uses a MAC computer.

The jpg images won't open on her Win8 tower using Windows Photo Viewer or with Photoshop CS2.  I tried to open them on my Win8 laptop and my Win7 tower using Windows Photo Viewer, Photoshop 7 and Photoshop CS2 but they won't open.  If I navigate to the photos using Windows Explorer and then use "Open With" and send a photo to Photoshop, a message says "Could not open jpg because an unknown or invalid JPG marker type is found".

I copied some photos from the thumb drive to a hard drive in my Win7 tower. If I open Photoshop and then navigate to the folder with the jpg images, no files show up.  Same symptom using Faststone.  The file names can only be seen using Windows Explorer.

Anyone ever have similar symptoms when transferring jpg files from a MAC to a PC?
