Seagate Barracuda spinning up, not detected

Hi,

I have the below Seagate Barracuda that I think spins up nicely, but is not detected in Disk Utility (macOS). I unfortunately do not know the history of the drive, other than that I suspect age might be in play.

Any ideas on what could be wrong would be appreciated. Please let me know if I can provide further information.

Thanks in advance.

Note: There seems to be some discoloring on the circuit board.

UPDATE:I have successfully followed the guide posted by Mech-maniac and can now see the following:

diskutil list

ddrescue

However, ddrescue fails to read anything. Why could this be?

Front.

Back.

Spinning up.
