It would seem that your drive is toast.
Maybe, maybe not. It could just be the USB interface in the enclosure that failed. I don't think the OP has removed the drive from the enclosure yet. That would be my next move. A lot of those uitilities may actually work with the drive connected in a PC and removed from the enclosure.
I read this in earlier post "Yes I have pulled it out of the casing but it doesn't do anything better.
The model of the hard drive is WD Blue (EIDE) WD1600BEVE. "
so I assumed it's connected directly to IDE port. To connect 2.4" HDD to desktop PC it would need an adapter from micro (laptop ) connector to full size IDE for Desktop PC.
I am sorry if I misunderstood your sentences. Did you mean the pins?
The pins are soldered intact with IDE to USB 2.0 circuit.
That circuit card should detach from the hard drive if you pull it. There is another set of pins on the hard drive that are plugged into the header on that circuit board.
