    John – Unfortunately it sounds like your hard drive has some sort of internal hardware mechanism failure. You will need to have it sent out to a hard drive data recovery specialist. Usually these people will disassemble the hard drive in a clean room, Rebuild the device and recover the data for you. Sometimes this can be costly. I do not have any companies that I suggest. I recommend that you do some google searches and look at company reviews to decide which to go with. Below is a link to a google search that I did for some companies.

    Good Luck, I hope they can help you retrieve your data!
