Hitachi Deathstar - any savings?

I just lot a Hitachi Deskstar 160GB,

It spins up, and then the arm just klicks (or is it the head banging
the disk surface?)

After the SATA timeout periode, drive isnt detected - and it keeps on

Are there any ways to get in touch with the drive, just for 30
minutes, to copy a few GB's of very important data off from it?

Any ideas?


Re: Hitachi Deathstar - any savings?

try the freezer a plastic bag in the freezer for about 1 hour
quickly hook it and see if you can take the info off...
because after that it will definitely not work again
