Exclamation Recover data - removed drive

Hello everyone and great forum!!

So my Zen froze on me while viewing images. Rebooted, tried to rebuild, then "Firmware Problem", cleaned up, rebooted and the same. It cant be detected by the pc, i got it to connect on another but no content in the drive and all properties "unknown". Battery full and charges ok, runs on its own etc... just wont rebuild. Ran fine for a year.

it has a good installation of the latest firm on it which worked fine.

I need to recover the data on the disk. I have a few sensitive documents on there i NEED to get out ... i dont care about the player at this point.

I saw online that this player uses a Toshiba hdd1442 with ATA-6 interface.

The disk sounds ok, no grinding or loud clicks, just normal clicking of an operational drive... (listened to it when it was rebuilding)

Question of the day... if i remove the hard disk and use an ATA-6 interface to connected directly to my pc, will i be able to access any of the files or run any software that will recover the files?

I was going to back up the drive this week... pissed i didn't do it more regularly

Thank you kindly
