Corrupt NEF Files

Something happened with my files and I wanted to see if anyone can help. I put my SD card in and opened my images in Bridge. The images opened fine and I was able to color correct and go on to the next ones, but now when I go to open those images I see one .NEF file and there are 20 images missing. It's almost as if they are compressed into this single file that I can't open and says is 1.95 GB but I can't open because it says it is empty. And when I pull up the Card in Finder I can see the .xmp written files but the .NEF photos are gone. I also tried an recovery software that didn't pull them either. I know I didn't delete them, but even if I did they should still be pulled from the recovery software. Is there anyway to open these files? Or are they gone.
