    - Unmount it and remount it
    - Unmount it and put it in your PC
    - Shut the phone down completely and boot it back up
    - Connect your phone to your PC and see if the card is recognized

    Sir,
    Please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thumbnail to explain what thumbnails are.

    They are generated based on the original pictures, so I hope those are still somewhere on your SDCard. Have you tried using the File Manager to look in:
    /storage/extSdCard/DCIM/Camera

    In the future these may help:
    Cloud Drive: http://market.android.com/details?id...uddrive.photos - automatically saves your pictures in the cloud (5GB free)
    Dumpster: http://market.android.com/details?id...loota.dumpster - allows you to undelete files that were deleted (unfortunately this app must be installed prior to the deletions)

    Were the thumbnails on your internal storage?
    Was it a SanDisk card by any chance?
    Have you tried putting it in your PC just to be sure?
