I have to disagree with my esteemed colleagues. If the drive has actually CRASHED, data recovery services are the ONLY HOPE you have of recovering those kid pictures. DiskWarrior and DR and all the rest can do NOTHING if the disk can't be found, and trying to use recovery software to fix a hardware problem can actually make the data recovery process more difficult.

Call DriveSavers, tell them your story, prepare to spend $2K getting the pictures back (if they're worth it to you).
