That depends on how much money you're willing to spend to recover the data.

If the data is critical you might consider a recovery service such as this one: http://www.ontrackdatarecovery.com/ Be warned though... they're expensive.

If you would like to try to recover the data yourself you might consider purchasing an external USB HD case and install the drive in the case. Attach the drive to your machine and see if the drive will mount on the desktop. If it does you may be able to copy data off it.

There's also recovery software available such as Disk Warrior:
