My laptop one day decided that it no longer wanted to boot up Windows.. Normally this wouldn't be a problem and I'd format and forget about it but the drive has some important stuff on it I was stupid enough to not back up.
When I plug the drive into my PC it won't boot so I got a USB hard drive caddy. The hard drive shows up in device manager as it should, it's a 640GB Seagate drive so under device manager it says STXXXXXXXXX or whatever but under Computer it just says "H:" and nothing else. When I double click it explorer ceases to respond. I've tried using 'Recuva' but that too stops responding when I select to recover files from it. At a bit of a loss as to what to so any help is greatly appreciated!

Tried a couple but they seem to become unresponsive when the hard disk is plugged in. The WIndows partition on this drive shows up as RAW but "Healthy" under disk management on Windows 7 on my desktop PC.
