It's dead, Jim - totally dead.

I have a dead hard drive. It's a Western Digital 120gig.
The PC does not recognise nor see the drive at all, nor does the WD diagnostic floppy.

I'm not too worried as I have a replacement, but I'd like to get some stuff off the dead drive if I can. (Just e-mail, documents, bookmarks and addresses)

I've heard that swapping the control board on the drive may work, but I don't have access to a second WD drive to do the swap.

Does anyone out there do data recovery?
