There is one way that you can try at home. See if you can get the PCB for that same drive. Sometimes you can get those from ebay.com and even other sources. You may have to do a comprehensive search based on the model number of your drive. Once you have it, replace the PCB and start to recover the files. This will only work if the failure of your drive is caused by an element on the PCB. If it is caused by an internal part, i.e. Platter, read/write heads, or the head actuator, you wont fix it at home. There is also a possibility that it could be the drive motor. The only other way would be to recover your files through one of the many commercial services. This is usually costly and would depend on the importance of your files. Hope this helps to get you started in the right direction.
