All of my .CR2 images appear with this odd "pixelation" problem. This occurs in Lightroom and Photoshop. In preview only black thumbnails appear. Here is what the photo look like.

This is symptomatic of a hardware problem causing a data corruption. An issue has occurred during transfer or save to the hard drive.

Likely suspects:

Memory Card
Card Reader
USB Port
Hard Drive

although other components may be possibly to blame. You will need to go through your components systematically to find the component at fault.
