1. Are you using an SD Card Reader or the card slot in the PC?

2. Were you able to see the files/folders correctly from that SD Card and that PC before?

3. Are you able to see the folders and files in the camera itself with the SD card in your camera?

4. Does your camera come with any software with which you can download the contents of the SD card right from the camera? If so did you try it?

Just to eliminate your system fault as the reason, try reading the SD card on another computer and then report. (using a different SD card reader, if you are using a Card Reader)

Note:1. Do not format the SD card. 2. Do not run check disk.

Ok, go ahead and try to transfer the data from the SD card on another PC with a card slot or with a different SD Card Reader on that PC. So a different PC and a different SD Card Reader if that PC does not have a card slot.

From the information you had given, I am inclined to think that your SD card is corrupted. The above test is required to categorically confirm it. May be you have to get into data recovery mode then.. Let us see.

Also, take a screen capture of how your SD card looks in the Disk Management and post it. Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image
