Are you using btrfs on uSD and especially the "share android how-to" can cause several issues with mtp export or sdcard usage.

The sd card i have in my Jolla is the same card witch was in my old andriod. When i moved the card to Jolla i didn't reformate or as far as i know modified in any way. May that be the problem?

That should be fat then, so no problem as long as you see everything on the phone. Is the USB mode set properly or "always ask"? Sometimes it needs a second attempt on the same USB port to work for me (Win is still very stupid as every USB port needs the drivers installed again and something times out while doing so)

Do you use a third-party map app like modrana or maep, or do you somehow have a lot of picture files stored on your phone? If so, your problems might be caused by the thumbnailing issue. Read there about the details.
