A big-hammer approach is jhead's -purejpg option, which, according to the documentation: Deletes all JPEG sections that aren’t necessary for rendering the image. Strips any metadata that various applications may have left in the image. This is a cross-platform (Mac, Linux, Windows) command-line program. For example, if you want to remove metadata ...
I use jpegoptim for stripping metadata: jpegoptim --strip-all filename You could also open the image with Gimp and save it without the metadata.
Exiftool is able to do this using the -ALL= (see the linked documentation). You can apply better control on this, however, and I would recommend that instead of just deleting all metadata. If you're looking to remove the location information, for example, just use some pattern matching.
Your first photos look pretty dramatic, but I think that's actually mostly a side effect of something other than the problem — you are doing it on purpose. I don't mean maliciously, but those are clearly examples where the weird artifacts are combined with a long shutter speed in order to make an interesting abstract effect. The "skeleton" image may be a ...
Moving the card between cameras is not likely to cause a problem. I think that's just a red herring. You might try some different recovery tool, but it seems likely that what you've gotten is as good as it's going to get. Time to get another card, and in the future remember to upload to a computer frequently and keep backups.
It most definitely is a image sensor/CCD/CMOS issue. These tend to fail over time due to heat, which could explain why it worked the first couple of months. It also isn't exposing properly (due to faulty CCD) hence the swirls and exposure of half a second. There was a time where they recalled their image sensors/CCDs but it was a while ago. It might be ...
It sounds like the files are becoming corrupted, however there are any number of possibilities how this could be occurring. If you are shooting RAW, it is possible that the preview jpeg (used for on screen display on camera and thumbnails on a PC) are actually intact, but the much larger raw data portion of the file gets corrupted. If shooting JPEG, there ...
