Hard drive failed after system crash, now showing as unrecognised

본문:

About a month ago, I updated my hard drive for the second time, orgininaly swapping the 110GB HDD for a WD Black 320GB drive back in 2009.

This time I swapped it for a Seagate Momentus XT 750GB Hybrid Drive, and did the same process as before, cloning the MacBooks current OS Drive and then installing the new one. I had about 3 weeks trouble free running, then, while I was in hospital for a couple of days it suddenly crashed on me using safari, and stopped responding.

I held down the power button to turn it off and re-booted it. Afterwards the system almost immediately repeated the same fault and I repeated the process once more, only to find that now I cannot get past a BLANK grey screen, no logo, no folder, no loading wheel.

After eventually deciding there must be an error with the drive, I took it out, put it in an enclosure and thought that if I could atleast back up my data to another drive using my sisters MacBook I can reformat and do a clean install of OSX Snow Leopard.

However, I saw no drive appear in finder, nor in disk utility, I tried a different enclosure (a newer USB 3.0) and it came up with the error message that the drive is unrecognised and I opened disk utility where I would see the listed drive. Requesting Information shows:

I have/had irreplaceable information and memories on this drive, work dating back to 2008, a music collection that took 12 years to put together I would appreciate help from anyone who could advise anything I can do to retrieve the data if possible even if it is complicated.

'''I've had a new idea, I'm scanning my original drive, which has been reformatted since installing my new one to try and recover the files from there, and buy a new drive to trasfer the files to if successful'''
