✔ Best Answer
You probably can't without professional tools and a clean room.

That said, if you find another drive of the same model, you can try swapping the circuit boards. If that's where the problem lies your drive will start working. If the problem is with the heads or disk surface, you'll need to send it off to a company specialized in data recovery.
