Tell us EXACTLY what you were doing and EXACTLY what happened. Card reader to paste?

I was using windows explorer to copy pics from an s d card in a built in card reader.
The sd card had show 2 different partitions??? I copied and pasted the first after making a new file and pasting them into it.
I went back to the card reader using windows explorer and right clicked to copy theses pics, and when I got to the C: drive and created a file, I right clicked and pasted and the pics that appeared were the first 4 only. I tried again and the same.
I then went back to the sd drive and the file was empty.

Thoughts on how to recover them?
