    Lightroom 5 stopped displaying all the photos in my folders.

      Lightroom 5 stopped displaying all the photos in my folders.  I have a question mark next to every folder on my external hard drive (which is plugged in).  

      I've tried reimporting all my photos, but that doesn't work. There is nothing to reimport. 

       

      All my folders are stuck in the single photo view mode.  I can't change the view no matter if I try to view my photos from my internal or external hard drive.

      Lightroom is also stuck in Library mode.  I cannot go to the Develop, Map, or Slideshow mode.

       

      I tried optimizing my catalog, but that didn't help.  I have the latest version of Lightroom 5.7.1. 

      What should I do?
