Why when i click my camera settings do they come up but then go away immediately

Ok so i downloaded "my files" app allowing me to easily move files from my samsung grand prime to my 16gb sd card ... im not knowledgble in this so i generally proceed with caution when moving anything... with tgis veing said my cousin gave me a 128gb SD card the other day and my phone accepted it so I went about moving my files from the 16gb to the 128gb card.. but i got scared and i think i may have moved something and it did not make it back to the device i really don't know what i could have done but now when I am using camera i can click the settings icon and the settings come down but then dissappear immediately. Also my yummy gummy app now will not access the free life video that it once did. I have downloaded this app three times since I went back to the old 16gb SD card and it still will not play. Please help me.

Welcome to Android Central! Were you only moving photo files, or were you moving whole folders to the SD card?

Does this persist after a reboot?

The card might also be corrupt or counterfeit, which can cause problems. Run the SD Insight app to test the card's validity. Counterfeit cards are relatively common--they take a smaller capacity card and program it to think it's bigger. It works fine until you exceed its actual capacity, after which data can get corrupt.

If the card is valid, then go to Settings>Storage, tap Unmount, remove the card and insert it into your computer's reader. Run chkdsk to look for bad sectors: http://forums.androidcentral.com/am...guide-using-chkdsk-fix-corrupted-sd-card.html
