    Are your photos set to save on internal storage or your SD card? If to your SD card, it is possible that the card is corrupted/damaged and that is why they are not showing up. If this is a problem when trying to save to internal storage that is a bigger problem and you may need to try a factory reset to see if that fixes it.

    Sorry I did not get back sooner, I have been away from the forums for a while. You can try reformatting the card you have before buying a new one. Here is some info on how to do that:

    Hope this helps.

    SanDisk has a very good replacement policy, so just maybe it will not cost you anything.
