    They're probably from a previous camera if you've been dragging the card along for a while. Check their dates and if they're from before you got the S4, (as long as they're not the 12/31/69 system file date) you can delete them. That jumble usually happens with letters/symbols not supported by the current font.

    Ive looked at some of the details and the dates and a few have some really weird dates like 1982 or 2032 and 2092 Its a new 32g sd card and also what is the 12/31/69 File ?

    System files usually get a date of 12/31/1969 or the date of manufacture. If that had been the case, they were created by the phone or the company.

    I'd make copies of them and delete them. If nothing weird happens, then no worries.

    Is it possible that the place where you purchased the SD Card sold you a card that was previously returned by another customer?

    Its def a new clean card, I checked it before I put anything on it, the whole reason I am concerned is I cant view any of the photos that start with the funny looking u in front of the file name when I put it in the micro sd adapter in my pc only the ones that start with a standard # , I can view them in the gallery of the phone no prob. the last 500 photos or so start with that U and have a differnt naming system for the pics its as if something changed on a certain date I hope I am explaining this good enough and thans everyone in advance for the help.

    could possibly be from an app, i had this issue with my old s2 skyrocket, apps would install pics/ads for some reason on my card. i got rid of the apps and no more pics
