I am having an issue with my SD card on finding files that I placed on it from another computer.

Story:

I had my files on a laptop which I sold now. I put my files on the SD card which is a SanDisk Extreme so I didn't lose anything. When I wiped my laptop I noticed on my main desktop computer they weren't there.

After feeling bad and silly thinking I lost everything for a long time, I went out again and took some pictures with a friend who was getting into photography. When I placed my SD card into his laptop my pictures were there in a folder.

I am now home making this post because my computer won't detect those files in that folder I made for them. I can see my DCIM folder and pictures but nothing else.

Has anyone else come across this issue with a solution?

Thank you

I can't be sure, but the computer your using may not be displaying hidden files and folders, and what you want to see may be hidden. If you're using win 10 , do the following. 1 Open File Explorer from the taskbar. 
2 Select View > Options > Change folder and search options.
3 Select the View tab and, in Advanced settings, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives and hit OK. I hope that helps.
