If your harddrive is just sezied up from worn out barrings you can try a trick by sticking it in the freezer for a couple of hours then as fast as you can reconnect your drive and copy your data to a new drive before it has a chance to seze up again. failing that. there are several hard drive recover programs that can reconsruct your drive, however not all data can be recovered. hope this helps.

Is the data on it really worth paying to get it off? There are places to get your data off a crashed hard drive, but they are really expensive and I'd suggest to shop around before picking any one company. There is no easy fix to this solution unfortunately (Sorry, I know you didn't want to hear this)

SOURCE: my WD800 hardrive fell down and now its not

Try connecting it to some other computer, and see if you can retrieve it. Also try a different OS too if it does not work.
