As I understand it, a disk must be "married" to the motherboard, and this requires software that is not generally available to the public.  You might get lucky, and someone on the forum can share it.  Years ago, I had a copy that was shared with me, but I lost track of it.

Most do a straight full (block for block) disk copy which copies the "marriage" information as well as the music data, but this requires a working disk that was married to your device.  Is there any chance you could have your disk recovered by a company that specializes in these things?  Typically, not much data is lost when a disk crashes (assuming it's a mechanical failure of the disk, and not drowning or beat with a hammer or power tool), but you need specialized tools to extract the data.
