Recover Data When Computer Wont Show Files on SD Card

“My Windows PC cannot recognize files, which are saved on my SD memory card. A week before it was able to identify only recent images and videos. But when I tried to copy all pictures and videos yesterday, system didn’t show up any files. Then I connected the card to my Sony Digicam, all files showed up; except videos. I just want to somehow copy entire files from my SD card to computer. These video files are related to my research and I don’t want to lose any of them. So please help me. Also I would like to know the cause behind this issue so that I can get over it in future”
