    Johnny – Do you hear the hard drive spin up when you plug it in? If you pick the external drive up while it is powered on do you feel a gyration effect? Try to plug the hard drive into another computer if you have one to see if it will see the data/partition on the drive.

    If these things do not work then it may need to be sent out for recovery. There are a lot of data recovery services that are offered online. Look at this site, it may give you more info into what is wrong with your drive. http://www.recovermyfiles.com/hard-drive-data-recovery.php
