While *powered off*??? That usually
means a) peecee was hit by lightning
and is fried, or b) disk is dead. By
"lost its primary partition", do you
mean that other partition(s) on that
disk are still accessible? (boggle)
If it's b), you may be able to get
it to spin up. If you're lucky, it
will work long enough to mount the
partition and copy everything.

Norton's disk tools used to be very
good at this. I hear they aren't anymore,
but I'm sure there are alternatives.
Maybe even free/shareware.
