not able to access photo files on galaxy A5(2017) sd card from MInt 19

Hi Forum,

I just got a new machine, and installed Mint 19 Tara on it. I have Mate 17.2, 17.3 Cinnamon on different computers. Both the older versions of mint can both access and read the all the files SD Card in my Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017).

On the new machine with Mint 19 Tara with Kernel: 4.15.0-36-generic x86_64 bits After what seems like 10 minutes, I can see photos files in the folder, but cannot move, or open them. If I try to dismount the device before it eventually loads, it tells me the volume is busy.

Interestingly, I can play the audio files from the sd card, and can view photos from the internal storage.

I am trying to back up the phone/card to my computer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
