    select one and press command+I and have a look at the application thats selected to open the image.

    It should either be Preview or iPhoto or maybe another image program you have installed.

    Also have a look at what it says after 'Kind' in the Get Info window.

    From where exactly on the G3 (PhotoShop etc) did you export the images before putting them on the usb drive.

    If they worked for a while, as the original poster said in the original post, then they were OK when they came across. So, something has happened since then.

    Presumably they are still on the jump drive from how the post reads. Could that drive be failing? It would be the simplest and most direct cause.

    Do you still have access to the originals? Can you just copy them again? Alternately, can you copy them off of the jump drive and onto your Mac successfully? Can you open them there?
