Hi



Your best option from here is to use data recovery software to access the missing data on your card..



You can download the software for free, just download "Free Data Recovery Software" and choose from one of the many free versions available.



Run the software whilst the card is in your PC and you should see the missing files that can be restored...



Come back to me if you need further help.
