First things first i'd check with microsoft website if there is any jpg plugins for your program.
To cut to the chase: id get hold of XnView, a outstanding image viewing program, available in multiple languages and versions including portable, and open the picture from there and select properties and see what format it is.
Also you can export to the various jpg formats. It might not be jpeg2000 but being as you can preview them newer but not older, something definitively is a bit weird
You should get Xnview anyway if you dont have it. Could possibly try to open files in Gimp as well.

I found this problem to be directly related to file size. In my case, I have found that by reducing the file size by way of reducing the picture size, Photodraw is happy.
Original Photo - Will not open in Photodraw
File size 5.6Mb
Resized Photo - Will open in Photodraw
File size 2.97Mb
I found that by keeping the file size below 3Mb I do not have anymore problems. My camera is a Nikon D3100.
I had to started using Photoshop due to this problem with Photodraw, but after finding out the problem - just use Photoshop to re-size using a fractal resizer plugin and then continue with Photodraw. Where Photoshop is far more powerful, I find Photodraw fits my requirements better.
Hope this helps someone
ADDED: Found this which I have applied and works perfectly now - no resize required. Apparently this is an Official Microsoft Fix
* Graffics Filter file JPEGIM32.FLT has been damaged, corrupted, or is missing entirely, possibly as a result of some software overwriting the correct version, which they are apparently unwilling to specify.
Their solution is to rename the filter file (in the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Grphflt\ directory) with a .old extension and reinstall the correct version either from the Office CD or the OS CD.
