Yeah. My Samsung Galaxy S7 roached a 120 gig or so micro sd card.

Fought with latest gparted. Test disk. Etc......

When it's broke. It's broke. I quit using external micro sd cards on that phone because that history.

Have not tried anything yet on my new Samsung S10e. It came with a 128 gig drive. So I will probably leave it be also.

that's what I told you. It is unreadable. Try another reader/OS/whatever you have. Probably another one will be able to use it. In that case you must copy the whole readable content (using dd) into a file and run testdisk on that file.
