I Lost Photos on My SD Card...

I just took about 200 photos on an 8GB SD card with my Canon 600D. When I tried to preview the photos that should have been on the card it said "No image". When I got home I plugged the SD card into a Mac book Pro. It showed the DCIM folder, but nothing in it. From my Mac computer I created and deleted a folder in the DCIM directory to make sure the SD card could read/write. How to recover my mobile phone photo and video from DCIM on Mac?

Why Data Lost from a SD Card

SD card photo loss may be a bug related to the card, which would mean the card is faulty. And it happens to all makes and types of cards, but I suppose the cheaper brands are more prone to faulty samples than the more well-known ones.

Don't format the SD card before image recovery. Also don't try to store anything else on the SD card.
