it depends on how bad it is. if it something you think is readable you can make it as a slave in another machine which has another hard drive and boot from the one that is good. If it is really bad, i mean the data cannot be read at all, you might want to send it to disk doctors. they r pretty pricey though.

The only way I know of is to send it to a data recovery specialist.  They will remove the platters from the drive, and read it sector by sector.  One I've used successfully in the past is www.datarecoveryspecialist.com.  They have flat rate pricing on their web site, and they will return the data to you on CD or DVD.
