    Then it is dead. You can:
    1) pay a lot of money for professional data recovery
    2) open it up, void any remaining warranty, and try to fit it in another PC as an internal (or put it in a different enclosure)
    3) if under warranty still, send it back for replacement and get a new drive, but lose all data
