Card not Recognized

I have a 16GB micro SD card that recently stopped being readable by my phone - I had used it for over 2 years prior to that. The phone says that the card is either blank or contains an unsupported filesystem and then does not get mounted. I tried plugging it into another Android phone and got the same message. I then tried plugging it into my laptop's card reader and the computer does not recognize there's been anything plugged in (another new card works just fine).

Am I totally out of luck here? When I run testdisk, the card is not listed (presumable because it can't be mounted) so I'm basically at a standstill right away. Any help would be much appreciated.

Unfortunately it's an hardware problem, try to contact a data recovery company like RecoverFab.
