    Welcome to the forums! :)

    Maybe try AirDroid, it's free and pretty good.

    Others may have better advice as well.

    sound that pics are corrupt or encrypted

    if they are corrupted, try a file recovery program
    may need to format sd card, that will delete all files, but may allow new pics to be written to card

    if encrypted you need a password

    do you have a 2nd sd card, you can test if new pics, can be saved to sd card?

    First check to see if you have entered your password on your phone. If not, your computer cannot see anything on your phone.

    This happened to me as well. I finally looked at my phone, and I had not entered my password to get into my phone. That fixed my problem.
