Default Need help with putting picture back on SD card for A3300

Hi, I need some help with my wife's A3300. She had 400+ pictures on the SD card. My daughter took the card out of the camera, put it in her laptop SD slot, copied and deleted all the pictures from the card and put card back in camera (she did not use the cable attached to camera method).
My wife wants the pictures back on the camera so I put the card back in laptop and copied the pictures back into the appropriate folders (monthly folder names i.e. 101__03) but the pics do not show up in camera viewer (I can see them on laptop so I know they are there). I am guessing that these folders are controlled by .CTG files stored in the CANONMSC folder (i.e. M0101.ctg) and it got out of sync when copying. Is there any way to sync the .ctg and folders back up so we can view the pictures on camera. BTW new picures work fine, just can't see the old pictures.
Thanks in advance for your help

Mystery Solved. I went back and looked at the picture name of one I took after moving back the older pictures and it was named IMG_0331. The pictures from the laptop are named 001, 002, 003 (must have gotten changed when copied over by what ever software she used). I changed back to IMG_0001, IMG_0002 etc and now they can be viewed on camera! Hope this helps someone else

Great. I'm glad you solved it.

Yes, cameras can be very picky about reading images unless they're identical to the way they were taken to begin with, including naming conventions, folders they're located in, etc.

BTW, I see this is your first time posting here. So, Welcome to Steve's!
