Solved: windows media player deleted photos on sd card
I opened windows media player while I had a sd card from my camera plugged into my computer. I had all of my pictures on the sd card. When I opened wmp it automatically started syncing the sd card. I didn't stop it in time. Now the sd card shows it has no pictures, but in "my computer" it still shows the space from all the pictures as used up on the sd card (8 gb card, had 4 gb pictures, still shows 4 gb used, barely any music was synced). Is there any way to get those pictures to show up?? Thanks!

Thank you that worked!! Yes, it automatically synced music. I read somewhere that if a device is plugged in and is over 4 gb wmp automatically syncs it. Which is really stupid because it clears the card when it syncs it.
