If you can't get the unit to be recognized by any PCs you put it in you are going to have a problem. You can send the drive to a company that does recovery by removing the chips but that may not work either. Some USB drive manufacturers have tools but some are hard to find and still, if the drives isn't recognized how are you going to select the drive for testing/diagnosing?
