See the TechRepublic article, 200 ways to revive a hard drive.

When you unzip this download, you'll get a Word document with over 70 pages of tips from fellow TechRepublic members on how to save the day when a hard drive fails.

As weird as this sounds...

Have another computer running.
Place this drive in a cold place (Fridge or open cool windows for a while (10-15 min)
Place the bad drive in the machine as the secondary master and see if the os will recognize it.
If it does then quickly copy important data to the primary drive.

Go to http://www.grc.com/default.htm and purchase spin Rite. About the best low cost utility you can buy. costs 89.00 well worth it. Saved me a couple different times.

man these people are good. Spinrite is great...I agree too. One
thing I would sugest. Find the manufacturer site and download
their drive check utility to start. it's free and will give you an idea
of where you are at. The suggestion to swap electronics is a
good one too.

otherwise call Drivesavers.

Rather than sticking the thing in the fridge, use a very cold can of pop.
