The hard drive is no longer usable. It will have to be removed, thrown away, and a new one installed.

The drive is identifying itself with its factory alias (UNICORN). AIUI this indicates an internal fault, possibly a damaged firmware module.

You would need commercial tools such as WDR-UDMA or WD's Trex proprietary factory tool. Then you would need to find a compatible firmware module.
