Welcome to Android Central! It sounds like a problem with the SD card, which is unfortunately a relatively common issue raised here at AC, especially with Samsung devices. The card itself might be corrupt, or device's firmware might be messing up the read/write process. Unmount the card (in Settings>Storage), remove it, and insert it into your computer. Can the computer read the files? If so, back up everything now. Then run chkdsk to see if there are any bad sectors: http://forums.androidcentral.com/am...guide-using-chkdsk-fix-corrupted-sd-card.html

And buy SanDisk cards. The quality is better, they're easier to deal with if (rare event) a card goes bad (when Samsung phones started chewing up cards, SanDisk came out with a modification to stop the problem from happening with their cards), they invented the technology ... You pay a little more for quality, but the most valuable part of a computer (in the phone, a laptop or a desktop) is the data. If the pictures aren't backed up, and one of the ones lost is your baby's first step ... How much is that worth?
