Probably your sd card in encrypted by UUUUUUUU.uuu ransomware.

In terms of recovering/decrypting the files, this type of virus usually encrypts the files with very high bit keys, and in very rare cases a decryptor can be created, usually due to failure or careless programming of the malware. But in the vast majority it is not possible, at least at the moment.

You can check if the ransomware that attacked you currently has the possibility to be decrypted here: https://id-ransomware.malwarehunterteam.com/index.php?lang=en

If you are a Kaspersky user with a valid license, open a support ticket in Kaspersky account, send them a sample of an encrypted file, and if you have the same file unencrypted.
