    I love to do photography on my phone, it supports DNG format (something like RAW), also recently i started taking image-sequence time-lapses in DNG format and they take up a lot of space, so i went out and bought myself a 64gb Samsung EVO SD card, but just hours after i ran into my first issue, when i finished taking photos for my timelapse, i ended up with 1050 photos, which was around 36 gb, i plugged my phone into PC using cable as usual, but when i opened the folder, almost every single image showed up as having 0 bytes instead of 31mb as it should have been, before when i saved all images on my phone internal storage, all was working fine, it is just now that i got an SD card that i got into this issue for the first time.
    Also when opening the image folder on my phone everything is working fine, all files show as having 31mb and also they open.

    Does any of you know what the issue could be? I formatted the SD card already so that is out of the way.

    Any help is apreciated, and thank you in advance.

    Did you change the save path to the SD card in the camera app?
    If you take out the SD card and put it in your pc, can you read it?

    Yes i did change the path to save all images to a specific folder in my SD card, and i tried it but sadly my SD reader is broken on my laptop.

    Did you take the card out of the phone, put it into your PC and see what's on the card?

    Did you run a test on the card to see if it's good? (These are destructive tests, so anything on the card will be wiped. try SD Bench)

    Same problem here. My case, if connected to PC(windows 10), my media files in my phone SD card are showing 0 byte. So it's unusable.
    The solution that I came up with is
    #1 to copy the file elsewhere in my internal memory
    #2 rename the extension (say from 1.mkv to 1.avi)
    #3 reconnect it To PC
    #4 Voila! the size ain't 0 byte anymore.
    #5 . rename it back to original extension. And have your back up to PC.
    However this method is time consuming. Yet it works .
