  1. 3 SD cards with photos on all show as empty in Windows 10


    I have 3 SD cards all crammed with photos in Canons CR2 format. All 3 show empty in my desktop PC (Windows 10 pro). I have been downloading photos from SD cards in this format for months. I can view the photos if I put the cards back in the camera. What's going on?

    3 SD cards with photos on all show as empty in Windows 10

    photos app not showing pictures on sd card

    Hello Camler,

    For better assistance, we would like to know more information about your concern.

    • Are you seeing a OneDrive folder in the SD card?
    • How are you trying to sync photos from the SD card to OneDrive? Did you enable
      Automatically save photos and videos to OneDrive whenever I connect a camera, phone, other device to my PC in the Auto Save tab on OneDrive settings?
    • Are you able to view the photos by checking the SD card only?
    Regards.
