if you don't already have it on a CD that came with the drive.

<i>and within my array </i>
Is this drive part of a RAID <i>x</i> array?

After testing, see if you cannot fix the issue (if it isn't a drive failure) or recover your data using a live CD (UBCD or a Linux live distro).

edit: This drive wasn't encrypted on a different system, was it?
