Can you use TestDisk 7.1WIP 32bit and under disk selection, can you select your disk instead of PhysicallyDrive?
Looks like Disk /dev/sd* (*= a, b, c, etc..).
There ar not 2 partitions in your partition table.
The current partition in your partition table is a FAT16 >32MB and probably wrong?
It's listed twice because there is a message that your FATn boot sector is not valid (message is related to this partition).
What partition and file system are you looking for?
Run another diagnose with testdisk 32bit and copy and paste the content of your testdisk.log into your next post.
