Thank you

Try this 1.

Check whether the files are not in hidden mode. Follow the following steps.

Step 1:

Click on the below link and download the file "AutorunExterminator"

Extract it --> Double-click on "AutorunExterminator" --> Plug your memory card


This will remove the autorun.inf files from your memory card and also from

the drives.

Step 2:

Click on "Start" -->Run --> type cmd and click on OK.

Here I assume your memory card drive as G

Enter this command.

attrib -h -r -s /s /d g:\*.*

You can copy the above command --> Right-click in the Command Prompt and

paste it.

Note : Replace the letter g with your memory card letter.

Now check for your files in your card.

Step 3:

After that, download the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from the below link

Update it --> Perform "Full Scan"

Note : Default selected option is "Quick Scan".

Good Luck.

Thank you, Bionik 21

Hi Carl,
G is the drive letter. It's just an example. Replace the letter G with your drive letter.
Good Luck

Thank you
Was your MC reader made before 2006? Older readers cannot read the higher capacity MCs made later.
You may need a newer reader.
Thank you
