If the drive was still good in any way one of those 2 ways would have been able to at least see the drive, if they couldnt access it. Since they cant even see the drive it has to be dead.
I've seen this happen in older computers a lot, where (for whatever the reason) the hard drive could be accessed by its original housing and not by another computer, although every time the hard drive has kicked-the-bucket a few weeks later.
I'm not trying to say you are wrong or anything, I'm just the type of person who tries every last approach, no matter what, so I can be completely sure it's dead. I suppose I'm just stubborn
. But the hard drive is on the bleeding edge if it's not recognized by either of those methods, I definitely agree with that.
