    What you want to do is connect your hdd to your computer through your ide or sata and run an mri on it. Look for the manufactures website there should be some software there that checks your hard drive or you can put it in an air tight bag and freeze the darn thing overnight then hook it up to your computer....good luck

    I'm pretty sure your hard drive is fubarred. I would only try the freezer trick if you were majorly desperate to get something really important off the drive. That trick might just buy you enough time to get something off. Highly unlikely though. And majorly dangerous to your pc and something frozen may end up having condensation on it which then would drip onto your motherboard components and booger your pc's motherboard. Some people have actually had success hitting it with a hammer when they believed the heads were stuck.
    Accidents happen, just move on and get that dog better trained. ;o

    Good luck!
