Is this drive dead?

Just been asked to look at Lacie external 250g drive that does not work.
The guy that owns it is a "yachty" and has 2yrs of photos on it and is desperate to save them
The hard drive is a Seagate Barracuda.
Have tried the usual, hooked as master IDE in my machine ( I have sata), checked jumpers.
Bios does not recognize it and my pc will not boot to windows with it connected.
Also have noticed it seems to get hot quite quicky.
Any other thoughts or am I flogging a dead horse? :eek:

John do you think that the recovery experts will be able to recover the photos?
BTW the drive is spinning.
