+  you should have said, you have a large number of LARGE JPEG images  :-)
I'm just guessing, but with images that size... 6500 x 4000... there
can and will be problems... sometimes, the application just times out
before it can read the entire file.  Try reducing the JPEG to page
size... if that doesnt work, you may have a corrupted file.
