It looks like you have a shot hard drive there Tufty. Does the hard drive when put into your new system as a slave drive actually spin up - is it registering in the bios?

If not one time solution/suggestion. Wrap it in towel and put in sealed zip lock bag and stick in freezer for 3-4 hours

replace as slave drive in new system and get stuff of it quick - don't frig about - you don't have long before it warms up and goes u/s again

Just a suggestion as you're not getting anywhere with it anyway! ;)

Have you tried it as a portable on a friends computer? Other than that, a computer shop might be the go.
