data recovery from a usb hard drive

my dad gave me a little usb hard drive to use. he'd like to to take a crack at recovering the data on it first. windows sees it as unformatted. what do you recommend to pull anything that might be recoverable off of it?

i've had good luck in similar situations with File Scavenger. use the exhaustive search option - it will take a long time and seem like the program locked up - this is normal.

crap... it wasn't showing up at all. that unformatted partition turned out to be a mystery partition on this laptop.

when i check out the drive properties i'm getting "The device cannot start. (Code 10)" It's a LaCie usb hdd.

File scavenger ftw.
Not sure if that will help if the disk isn't showing up at all though.
