Decided to transfer my photos today to do some major photo editing. Going from GalaxyS5Neo to my Laptop for the first time. PC (WINDOWS 8.1u/d) identifies card & phone as 2 separate drives & most files as you might expect are accessible. However, card does not appear to have a file containing photos & phone "Pictures" file is empty. Photos are readily viewable on phone via Galaxy App. Anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance, SG

You'd have to look in the folder DCIM. That's where photos taken by the phone camera are stored by default. You should be able to search for it via file Explorer on your computer. It should be right in device storage.

Thanks Goran. Got em! ;)

Didn't check all the file folders on the card because there are over 50, so just randomly checked those with obvious names.

DCIM = Digital Camera IMages. Now it will be forever etched in your mind.
