im sure this has been covered in another post, but i have to wait 130 seconds between searches now.
i have a Western Digital 500g ext hd that seems to have crashed on me. everything i have is on this ext hd. my internal hd only holds 128g so i only used it to hold my OS and some apps. over the last couple days my computer would freeze suddenly and give me the beach ball. i would have to force restart. i narrowed it down to something to do with my ext hd. i brought it to work, and the same thing happened on my g5 here. it would lock up my entire computer. i just restarted and now its saying, "the disk you inserted is not readable by this computer." i can here a repetative "click" pattern, which ive heard before on failing hd's. does anyone know of a good recovery company? i cant lose anything off of this. all my graphics projects/music etc..... is on this. its fairly new, less than a year, so ill check my warranty. thanks for any help."You can't fight in here, this is the war room!"

See the link in this section "The disk was not repairable" to see if that helps your situation.
