    Try it in the other ports. It is a hard drive, so it won't actually use the speed provided by SATA 6G anyway.

    drive it toast sadly.

    faulty logic board sounds like.

    try the old fridge trick, leave it in fridge(not freezer) for a hour so gets real cold and then try it. grab as much data as possible before it warms up.

    Try it in some other system or in an external enclosure if you have one. Might also be something funky with your system...

    I don't know why the fridge trick would work - that only (sometimes) works for failing mechanical components such as the motor. His drive seems to have an issue with the controller, which won't be affected by the cold.
