2 days ago my SD card was not recognized anymore by my smartphone. I tried to access it with ubuntu, but to no avail : no error message and nothing in nautilus.
I tried "ls -la /dev/sd*" with and without the card inserted to determine that my card was "/dev/sdb".
I tried to mount it using different options (vfat, msdos), none of which worked.
Before doing anything else, I backed-up the card.
Then I ran testdisk (quick search and deeper search), but no partition was found :
Code: Select all

What else can I do to try to salvage at least some files ?
