How would they ever know you had frozen it?

Just put the drive in a bag a freeze it.  Then put it in the computer...

I guess that would pretty much bugger up the warrenty though, as the HD is
still covered.  But then there is my 3 year music collection on it, which to
me is worth more that the HD.

Even better: take it out, wrap it tight in plastic (ziploc freezer bag works
well) and put in a deep-freeze freezer over night.

In the morning, prep a machine with the side off and a backup-destination
hard drive.  Remove the drive from the freezer, unwrap it, and plug it in
immediately.  Power up that computer.

7 out of ten times it allows you to read the data one more time.  But only
once, so have another drive in the machine to copy to...  Once you shut it
down, it is toast.

I kid you not.

Don't give up that easily on this.  Take that drive out of the case, power
up with it connected and smack the crap out of it.  Maybe it just has a
touch of stiction, and you can get it spun up long enough to move your
irreplaceable data.

WTH, you have nothing to lose at this point!
