Removing the drive from the external case, and connecting it directly to a sata port is usually a good start. If you are still having issues you could try booting a machine to a Ubuntu live cd, and accessing the machine through that. If none of that makes any sense I would suggest taking it to a local repair center and see if they can save any of the data on the drive.
