Try the freezer trick, if not, you're screwed.

Or..... you can ask Segate or another recovery computer to recover the files. It'll most likely cost somewhere around 1k USD though.......

If you have a spare hdd of the same model you can try to exchange the circuit board. It could be possible that the platters and actuator-arms inside are still working. But first you can check, if something broke of from the circuit board of the hdd (or maybe a cable to the stuff inside is loose).

Does it click upon startup/usage? If so, then buy a new one. I just had an EIDE fail on me last week.

Ah the click of death.

Ok the freezer trick (sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't)

get an antistatic bag
place HDD in antistatic bag
seal the bag as airtight as possible
place in freezer over night
install HDD again (be quick)
remove and copy all files to another HDD

If it works you have maybe 1/2 an hour to recover data.

The freezer trick only works for some. When I froze my clicking harddrive..... I just ended up with a really really cold HDD. I could barely hold it for three seconds because it was so cold.

Good luck with it though, sucks to lose a hard drive.
