    Did you copy or move them from the 32gb card to the external drive?

    Yes I copied from my card that was inserted into my laptop
    The files are all on the external hard drive and still on the card. But when I put the card in my mini cam and try to play them it shows as being empty.
    If I put the card in card slot on laptop it shows them all there. I am going to upgrade my laptop soon
    So I should be able to play them but I want to no how and why my camera can no longer see the data

    Thanks

    I might not have a solution, but somebody here might be able to help if you told us the brand and model number of the camera.

    Just to confirm, you were able to use your camera to access and view all of the files on the card before you removed the card from the camera?
