Files are still there, but phones can’t read and only show when open on a comput

Data loss/not shown
I once connected my phone with an SD card to an old kind of computer. I didn't transfer anything, only to charge the phone. But when I disconnected, everything on the SD card was gone, but it still said that files are there. When I connected to another computer, it showed that somehow there was a shortcut of my drive in my own drive. That's why my phone couldn't read it. I solved that problem by formatting the drive and copy everything back. But this time it happened on my iPod, which is more complicate than the last one (and there is 10GB data which is a pain to copy everything all over again).
In conclusion, everything is there (because the iPod says so and I can open files on a computer). But the phone/the iPod can't show/read it, which makes everything worthless. Can someone please tell me how to put the files back to its original place?

    Have you updated your iPod/phone OS or software? First of all update then try again.

    Strange. Is the SD Card set in the device to be the primary storage for pictures and video? There may have been something that changed when connecting to the computer.

    So far that strange computer still make that mistake every time I connect it to any other devices. And there's no way to fix it but format/reset the storage and copy the data again. Now I just want to know what kind of computer is that.

    What did it mean, "what kind of computer is that"? Are you not aware about your system/OS? There are several types of computer, but in general, we are using either Windows/Linux based PC or laptop OR Apple Mac based desktop/laptop. Now you check your system's configuration and back with details.

    I'm sorry for the lack of information. I meant "what was the software installed in the computer that make it function like that?" It's a normal-looking desktop with Microsoft XP.

    You should see the SD card or device, depending on you you are connecting to it show in File Explorer. Then navigate to the folder containing the images/pictures and see if they are truly there.
