Ok,, This is what happened
I was in stock 4.1.2 and installed Custom ROM,, since that I felt lost few of photos and videos. I didn't feel good with that Custom ROM so I installed back to stock 4.1.2 and automatically upgraded to 4.2.2. And since that I lost greater than before. I used many recovery software to recover my lost but I had nothing. I decided back to 4.1.2 but something worse happened,, 3/4 of my video and gallery disappear,,
Perhaps someone know what should I do or anyone had same experience like me?

# Sorry for my bad english

some idk about that but in my case I lost all of my data including all the movies i copied in my tab.. After checking sd card throughly using CWM recovery i managed to find out that every thing was there but flashing a new rom mounted a new partition kinda thingy lol old data was saved as SDcard/data but after the flash new data was saved as SDcard/0/data and i couldnt find any way to access the old data.. I had to format the sdcard completely using CWM to get back the space taken by my old data though...

Thanks for your reply.. so, there's no way to get our old data? I'm sure my data was not lost.. but hidden somewhere just like you said. Because my remain storage's memory was not increase (constant) since my data lost.. is it happen in tablet device only? Because I never face this case expect in tablet device

You're welcome I'm always happy to help.. Well the problem is I couldn't find any way to recover the old data... so was forced to completely format my tab using CWM recovery to get back the space of almost 6 GB taken by my old data.. if you can somehow get back to the old partition then it might be possible to get it back but sadly i wasn't able to find anything on the net though.. BTW it didn't happened again though so far and yes you are right it only happened on my tab... I flashed new ROMs multiple times on HTC desire C and Samsung Galaxy Y DUOS but this never happened..
