Try checking with WD's testing tools.

Or if you have linux boot rescue CDs, they will have data recovery (testdisk) and similar tools. Or use test disc rescue CD

http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk_Livecd
Ultimate boot CD is another collection of great tools.

If you don't even get a disk powering on feeling (touch it) or LED's blinking, then chances of any recovery is very weak. Is it a external powered big disk or the new passport models? If big one, check your adapter and replace it from a local market and see.

when your disk is powered up and connected to computer, can you see any LEDs blinking / lighting up (if there are any) or feel the hdd movement / vibration?

what is the model name? is it small or large?

it has its own power cable or only USB connector?
