    Are you sure your files are not encrypted or marked as 'hidden'? If you try to read the card on a PC, does it show anything?

    Unfortunately you might need to format it, each phone is different on how they read SD information. But you could also try just turning the phone off and on as well

    Can you view the contents of the sd card using a file explorer?

    Seems to be some issues with removing a SD from one phone and moving it to the LG G3.
    Not all the time, but sometimes.
    The G3 buggered the card so it has not data unless you use a recovery program.
    You will need to format the card after you try to recover the data.
    Once that is done you should be able to move files from the computer to the card then put it into the G3.
    Try formatting the card in the G3.
    Check to see what capacity it is reporting. If it isn't reporting the correct capacity you may need to partition the card in a PC with a single partition then use the card on the G3.

    The note 3 is now saying the same thing, but it sees the music and pictures when I open gallery or music. But in notification bar it says card is empty, and only thing it will let me is format card, which I did not do.

    When going from one manufacturer to another, you generally need to reformat the SD card. I just transfer everything to my computer, and then I transfer it back once it's been formatted.

    This is the first time this has happened, I've switched between several phones with this card.

    Bad sd card? I've switched between Samsung, htc & lg this year and never had any problems.

    Samsung Moment->HTC EVO->EVO LTE->LG G3

    Well there's enough other problems, don't think this is the phone for me. Now it won't charge, says use charger and cord that came with the phone, I am. It worked fine Last night, just plugged the note 3 in and its charging just fine.

    If you are within your 14 days, I'd take it in to exchange it and give another G3 a shot. I have to say, I really like this phone. I have downloaded the Nova launcher though. It seems to make any phone run smoother. Plus, there are more customization options.
