You might want to backup everything from that SD card with a computer or another phone > reformat the SD card > transfer everything back and check again.

I've searched for posts on this but couldn't find any:
I have tried to use two 128GB micro SD cards in my Sony Xperia Z5 phone (android 6), and have had problems with both of them. The first one destroyed a lot of files when I tried to transfer them into the card while it was in the phone – they have either vanished or they appear as black squares with that ‘broken image’ symbol on them.
I requested a replacement from the seller, but this also does not work properly in my phone. I transferred a lot of files – photos and music - onto the card using the Sandisk card reader that was supplied with it; I can see them in the Finder window on my Mac, so they seem to be on the card, but when I put the card into my phone they are simply not visible. (Several entire albums of photos are invisible, and numerous music files have vanished completely).
I also cannot transfer any files onto the SD card; when I click on 'transfer files' it does nothing.
Is there an issue with Android 6 & Sandisk sd cards?
I found one solution that says to 'use the SD card as internal storage' - but the option to do this is not there on my phone. It refers to clicking 'on the 3 dot menu' after tapping on the SD card - but there IS no 3 dot menu in 'SD card' - the only options are to format or eject. Can anyone help please?...!

Hi @uliwooly - I'm now onto my second Sandisk micro SD Hc card and the same problems are occuring with files not appearing on the phone; vanishing from the card, & I also cannot transfer any files to the card from the phone. I've opened a new thread to try & see if anyone knows what the cause is & how to fix it (except I cannot now find this thread, even though I checked to subscribe to it!)

Hi @uliwooly - I just replied to you on another thread as I couldn't find this one, but it seems to have been moved into a discussion about lost apps on the SD card?
My issue is not about apps; I have no apps on the card, it is photos and music that are missing / not visible on the phone. This has happened with 2 micro SD cards now; I feel they cannot both be faulty, but nobody has replied to suggest there is a compatibility issue with android 6. I think you have replied earlier tpo say that this is not an option with android 6?
I'll try re-formatting.
