What make and model of disk is it? Did it come as a complete unit, or did you put a hard drive in a box?

Also, go to the maker's website and download any diagnostics for it, or use the cd-rom that came with it to do diagnostics. Tell us the results. Be care that you don't reformat it, or otherwise harm the files. There are definitely ways of recovering files from disks in this condition.
