Recovery services tend to be expensive.  You'll need to decide just how 
much the data is worth to you.  Seriously.

If the problem is "external" (a problem with the circuit board attached to 
the drive), then repair or replacement of that board may work.

Try DriveSavers

If the problem is "internal", then you will not like what it costs.

But, NSA could almost certainly recover your data.
