SD-Card not readable anymore

So, just came back from a tour with my family in the wonderful Harz Mountains. Wife hat her cam with her, took some pictures. After we came home she - as usual - wanted to copy the pictures from the SD-card to her computer. No card recognized by her computer, so she did put it back into the Camera to check - Camera wants to “format new SD-card” - which my wife obv canceled. Came to my, I inserted into my PC - no SD-card available. So I checked via KDE partition manager:

Does not look good, no partition available where once a partition was. Looks the same on lsblk:

udo lsblk -o +uuid,name,model

Any idea how to proceed, any chance to get to the pictures?

could try a partition recovery

Test your luck with

1 extra/testdisk 7.2-1 (448.2 KiB 1.7 MiB) 
    Checks and undeletes partitions + PhotoRec, signature based recovery tool


The partition seems to be there, /dev/sdc1?

Perhaps a filesystem corruption?
