^^ this, I work for a company and deal with hard drives all day long.
This method has worked a few times for me, however i put it in the freezer for about 10-15 min, then (from when i have done it) you only have 1 shot to get it up. So take it out let it sit for a min or so, then fire it up. It will either fire up, or not. If it does back everything up ASAP if not then yoru shit out of luck.

Good luck.
