You can try removing and re-inserting the SD card if you haven't already Make sure you power down the phone first, or unmount the card prior to removing (settings, storage, unmount SD Card). You can also hook up your phone to your computer to see if you can access the files on the SD card that way. If you can, copy them to your computer, format the sd card, then copying them back. If that doesn't work, but you were able to pull via computer, you may need to just replace the card.



Can't imagine how updating would have affected the SD Card. Was this an official update?



To answer your question, if you reformat the card, then all of the data on it will be lost. If what I suggested doesn't work, give it a coouple of days for others to respond unless you have the pictures backed up somewhere. If you do, then format the card (settings, Storage, Erase SD Card).
