Yes, probably you can recover data:
2 ways:
1. Find an electronics board that matches exactly with your HDD model and replace the board (I give you 60-80% chances to succeed)
2. Find a specialized lab to retrieveyour data, it's much safer but much more expensive too.

Good Luck

plz tell me the details of 2nd options thanx

Any of these 3 should be able to do this job for you.

I would expect you are looking at $900 to $1500,
possibly more.

Depending on the location where you live, you should be able to find the closest sprecialized lab for recovering your data by asking at you local repair shop. They should know. Or you can search on the web. Or yellow pages. It's not so difficult  :-)

I agree with kronostm #1.  If only card is fried, not HD or mobo, you should be able to plug in another controller, or easier - move it to another computer as HD#2, and retireve data that way. If it is fried, I give you 100-1 that you won't recover anything. If it was on and running, and simply mislais a single sector, then you have better chance. Either loss of the file that was not updated properly, or maybe you can simply reinstall the OS in the same place if it won't boot on a good card.
