    Welcome to Android Central! Were all of the photos and videos stored on the SD card, or were some of them also on Internal Storage?

    Use a file manager app like MyFiles or ES File Explorer. Look in the /DCIM/Camera/ directory on Internal Storage. Is anything there?

    Anything else lost, or just the photos/videos? Was anything being backed up to Google+ Photos or any other cloud storage?

    There are a few threads about this and some are in the note 4 forum.
    I think its related to uninstalling apps... it seems to move pictures to a hidden file imo.
    >Install es file explorer and in settings check the box to show hidden files. Run a search and if it ask for a deeper search go ahead and do it.
    > activate google plus and set it to auto back up. You can set privacy settings as you wish so pictures do not get shared and basically only use it as a back up.
    >Run The google plus back up asap.
    Between these 2 processes I got all of my pictures and video back. In this day and age it is senseless to not back up you images and video to cloud as most phone are doing away with sd card any way.

    As I said my images and video disappeared after unistalling apps...I think it moved my images to a hidden file...some of the apps even gave a warning about deleting media files but I didin't check the box and wham...my stuff was gone until the process above was used. Good luck .
