    if the files are that important then it is best you find a professional shop that is able recover files off the disk that is probably damaged. usually they should provide you with a list of files that can be recovered before any payment.

    Cables: ensure they are seated properly.
    Run an alternate OS on CD. Linux Live CD.
    Determine if it is accessible this way.

    Does it spin up, lights show!
    Try plugging into a different location; If USB1 try USB2; If Front USB try Back USB; Try plugging in the drive as non external (remove from enclosure, insert in your computer).

    There is no requirement that you must be a Dr. to be a medical examiner.
    If the patient is already dead, he cannot sue you for malpractice!
