^Right. The JPEG format doesn't support layers. Every JPEG in existence is a single layer.

You opened a JPEG in Illustrator? There should be a single layer containing the image. What are you expecting to see?

When you convert a single layer JPG to an AI file you still get a single layer file.

The only way to view all the layers which made up the original image is to view the original AI file before it was converted to JPG.

JPEGs don't have layers. At what point in this file's history did it have layers?

Let's turn this around. There is a REASON you expect to see layers when you open a JPEG. Other people have covered that you won't and never will so... let us know what it is that leads you to expect this?
