Saving a corrupted WD5000/500GB Internal HDD

This is a spare HDD and it has become corrupted. BIOS can see the drive identifier, but WIn10 File explorer and Disk Manager cannot see the drive. There is no physical damage to the drive. I believe it was corrupted by a new version of my imaging software. I have been unable to reformat or run any diagnostics on it. Can this HDD be saved?

Does Data Lifeguard (link below) see the drive?

Hy, i have a similar problem. my bios show 0.0 gb for my WD40ezrz disk, and i can’t do anything… perhaps the drive is damaged… good luck.
