looking for a pinout on a flash drive

Like Luke already told you, it's probably just LGA60 which you should have the adapter for. Don't mind the fact that it has three extra pads at each end, those are probably just unused or grounded out contacts. I really think your issue is just that excess solder left behind on the pads preventing t...

are they different ?

Are the drives different? Not really. They are the exact same family drive and generally comparable in every way.

Should you use them in a RAID? No, absolutely not. Green drives are not suited for RAID as their power-saving functions can lead to chaos in a RAID.

How to Check Compatible Heads WD

If you've got at least one system head that's working you can. You'd just need to modify the RAM to disable all but the good system head so it can ID and you can get that info from the drive. But, if there are no good heads, then no.

Can this HDD be recovered?

In our "spare" time we work on low budget movie projects and, just like you see in the big budget TV shows, we can totally recover the data on the drive in your picture using a special wand :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28MC5LzS3xg And we can defeat most encryption with a hammer too ...

I'm not saying you shouldn't buy it, but you really should know what kind of company you're dealing with.

G-List and P-List

I think this is mainly used by drive refurbishers but I'm curious to hear if there's other uses for it. I know what both are etc. but for the purpose of data recovery, I can't get my head around the need for interfering with them. For example: moving the G-list into the P-list, serves what benefit ...

How long was your biggest recovery?

Right now i've got an 8Gb flash drive that I've been re-reading bad NAND blocks for about three weeks. Despite only having about 50Mb of unread blocks left, nearly every file is affected by a few bad sectors still.

Can this SSD be recovered?

I don't get the obsession with destroying perfectly good hardware to erase data. Too many people keep reading conspiracy theories perpetuated by morons with no understanding of the technology. The moment you did the secure erase the SSD generated a new encryption key and became forever unrecoverable...

It was 100% unrecoverable by all present and future data recovery tech after just this one step. Everything else you did was totally redundant and wasteful.
