You might want to use a professional service to recover the data. Its not really an easy process and I dont suggest opening up the hard drive since the parts inside are very sensitive.

Burned out the control board by connecting the Hard Drive to a USB-to-IDE Adapter. Looking for ways to recover my data.

The only practical way to recover the data is through a professional data recovery company that has the equipment to do this.

A "click" sounds a serious problem for an harddisk

If posible backup all your data and then run DM (disk manager) on your HDD

This creates new tracks and sectors (BUT THE OLD DATA IS LOST)
Creating of new tracks and sectors may help to stop the clicking sound

I have a SmartDisk Firelite 80 GB hard drive that appears to not have any more power. (no light or spinning). What is the best way to proceed to recover my data ?

Hi jspurrple. It sounds the board on the external casing. So remove the hard drive from it, and connect it to another computer as a "slave". Then proceed to move your data. In case it's the actual hard drive, it's the voltage regulator ON the logic board. It's a transistor around where you connect the power cable, you just rip it off and it will turn on, but BE **CAREFUL** I do not recommend you doing that if you are not an IT tech. I hope this helps.

The motor will not spin the hard drive,can i take an exact same drive and transfer the motors to get my data and family photo albums off it??

that would need to be done by a prfessional in a clean room with calibration tools, you would not be able to do that at home.
