just one firewire cable will work.
if the unit doesn't power on you can pull the hard drive out and put it in another external hard drive case usb/firewire/sata.
if it doesn't work then the only option to recover the data is to send it to a 3rd party hard drive recovery.
Have you been able to access the drive in the past? If so it might have become corrupt so do a reformat of the drive and format it to NTFS. You can also uninstall and reinstall the drive for your HD before doing this. Pretty much a last resort.
A disk may be formatted using different file systems. The ones used by Windows PCs are FAT32 (an extension of the old MS-DOS FAT) and the newer NTFS.
If the drive is formatted as FAT32, the maximum file size is 4.294 million bytes (some systems report this as 4.294 GB; it is actually 4 GB minus one byte).
If this is the case (Start -> Run Command -> DISKMGMT.MSC and look for your external drive, it will say something like 489 GB NTFS or 489 GB FAT32), my suggestion is to back it up somewhere else and reformat it as NTFS. There also are utilities to convert FAT32 into NTFS, but if anything goes wrong during the conversion, you can say goodbye to all your data.
Note that you won't be able to access a NTFS formatted external drive except from Windows PCs (and most Linux, usually read only), while FAT32 disks are readable from Mac OS X too.

I did some research, because I get the same error, and i found that if your hard drive is formatted in FAT32 it will only transfer about 4 Gb at a time. The answer I found, was to re-format your drive in the newer and more secure, NTFS file system. This, would increase your transfer rate to about 480 Mb/s, if your using a USB 2.0 port. The course of action that I'm currently taking, is to little by little, move folders on to my hard drive, and then reformat, and then transfer the files back.
