WD5000BEVT 500gb - failed to open

Please help.

I had WD5000BEVT 500gb which is failed to open, but it was detected in PC.

Scanned by Data Lifeguard - Quick test result… Status Code = 07, Failure checkpoint =97

I’d bring this HDD to the IT shop and it says it need to do recovery and it cost about RM500-RM1000.

Is that true?

What are the other alternative to enable to open HDD in PC?

Appreciate your expertise help!
