Perhaps it is attacked by virus or thr FAT is broken. You may need a data recovery software to recovery the data and then fix it. I will recommend you a totally free software. It will help you recover the invisible data. Download a free one here: http://freeware-recovery.blogspot. [...] overy.html
Connect your card to your pc and launch the freeware. Then click data recovery on the demo and let the software scan the invisible files. After the scanning you will see the lost data in front of you again. Preview the files and decide which to save.
By the way the page I give you also has many information about the freeware so you will find it quite easy.

richard694000: actually I'm asking for my 16 GB micro SD because no micro SD comes with a switch. I plugged it out from my LG phone and plugged it in again, then all the files became invisible even the computer says 13.1 GB in use but no files are showing. Any help?

Stop using this drive in case of any data loss.
And then, use data recovery tool to check whether all your inaccessible files or folders are recoverable.
Just search a reliable data recovery tool for your drive over the internet.
Note: Never try to save everything important on only one drive in the future.
