My hard drive has died. I can get as far as the black page with the XP logo with the "loading" bar underneath, then it hangs and the drive starts clicking.
I have a second drive with a working windows install (hence I'm posting here), but I NEED to get the data off the dead drive. There's a lot of my in progress songs on there, but most importantly there's a lot of pictures of my daughter that I hadn't backed up. Yeah, my fault for not backing up, but I absolutely HAVE to get those pictures back.
So, any ideas?

Daft as it sounds, have you tried freezing it? I've heard that works, freeze it then plug it in again.
