    Heard that putting the drive in a ziplock baggie and throwing it in a freezer for a few hours might help.

    The only method I know off worked with Quantum Fireball drives.

    Its quite funny.

    Slam it as ahrd as you can into a wall with the top.

    THings worked like a charm then...

    Doubt it'd work in your case though

    I've heard this is a myth and can do more harm then good. ;) If data is mission critical you could try a place that recovers data from dead drives, though you'll pay a good penny.
