If you type
   gdalinfo --formats
it will list the formats that are available. Mine lists
   JP2MrSID (rov): MrSID JPEG2000
But not all JPEG2000 are equal. The JPEG2000 allows a lot of variation
within the JPEG2000 format "umbrella", so it's possible that GDAL can not
read your files. Try doing
   gdalinfo your_file.jp2
That might give you some clues.

Regardless, you might want to convert them to tiled TIFF's with internal
jpeg compression and overlays for performance.
