You can first check if there is something wrong with the card reader you are currently using. If not, there may be problems with the files in your SD card. They are likely deleted or lost for certain reasons. Use EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac Pro for help.

You need to follow the steps below: 

Step 1. Carefully connect your SD card to your Mac and open EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard for Mac Pro. Find "SD Card Recovery" and find your SD card. Click "Search for lost files" to scan the lost files.

Step 2. When the scanning is finished, you can see the scan results presented on the left panel. You can filter these files by type. Find the files you want to recover.

Step 3. You can first preview the selected files. Click the "Recover" button and save the recovered files to a new location.

You can click "Disk Backup" from the left side to create a backup of your SD card to avoid data loss during the process.

To better protect your SD card from damage, you can do as follows:

  • Eject the SD card before unplugging it from the reader
  • Always keep your SD card dry 
  • Do not run batteries to the edge on any devices
  • Turn off the devices when you remove the SD card
  • Unplug the SD card if you decide not to use it for a while
