Photo repair

I had a bunch of photos I took damaged by inserting the CF card into a pocket PC, which right away proceeded to delete everything on the card. I managed to recover about 80% of the photos, but a lot of them are damaged: some have the left side of the photo on the right and the right on the left, others have messed up colouring, others just have parts of the photo blank, etc.

I'm trying to manually repair these photos in photoshop and I've come across something strange. When I view a damaged photo thumbnail in Adobe Bridge browser, the photo looks normal. When I try to open it in photoshop, photoshop says "This document may be damaged (the file may be truncated or incomplete). Continue?". If I continue to open it, it opens the photo in the damaged state, with parts missing.

What I'm wondering is how does Adobe Bridge get to show the actual undamaged photo and can I somehow get to repair the damage through that?
