There use to be a problem like that sometimes ago: some pictures could
never be recognized by Digikam whatever you do, and though they were
perfectly OK with other programs.
I don't know if the problem still exists, but it was due to wrong records
left in the database and - at that time - the only possibility was to
remove them manually, or start with a new DB from scratch.
Now there are some maintenance tools included in Digikam interface, that
might help to fix that issue.
