See if you can view the files on your PC. If you've lost your files, try recovering them with software like Recuva. If you can't get your PC or your phone to read the card, put it back in your phone and format it. Once formatted, try recovering files with Recuva.

The phone is telling you that it can't read the SD card, and you may need to reformat it. I don't have much time to explain what formatting is, but it wipes everything on the card and makes it just like new.
