TestDisk generates a log file named testdisk.log, please copy and paste its content.
Is PhotoRec/TestDisk reporting the correct disk capacity ? If it's not the case, you should contact a data recovery company as the flash controller or the memory chip is probably damaged.

Even "thebest" might consider providing an error description. :idea:
Look what others users wrote and you will quickly get an idea what is useful or not.

Another good start is the manual:

Cross-read the documentation

to find information that applies to you.
