    Hello,
    I was at a concert last evening and recorded videos and when the concert was done I noticed I could not view or play my photos/videos. I have tried fixing the Photos and MP4 files but when I try to fix the MP4 files it keeps saying there is no video. Is there any way to fix this I really need these photos/videos.

    If it was just a glitch with the card you might be able to recover them by popping it in a card reader and running some standard file recovery software (no point paying for "special" software for phones: if you have a Windows PC then Recuva is free and will do this as well as anything else).

    However, have you validated the card before use, or have you used it sufficiently (i.e. filled enough of it without any other problems like this) to be sure that it's a genuine card? There are a lot of "fake" cards out there, small capacity cards that scammers relabel as high capacity, hack the card so it tells the OS it has a higher capacity than it really has, and then sell as a "bargain" high capacity card. If it's one of those your data are likely gone, because what happens is that when the real capacity of the card is exceeded newer data will be written over older, and at that point no file recovery software will help you.

    You can use a free app called SD Insight to determine if your card is legit or fake.
