salvaging a dying hard disk

I'm attempting to save some data - not necessarily all - from a disk 
that is failing or possibly I'm afraid already dead and gone.

I've attached it along with a good drive to one machine and booted into 
an Ubuntu live disk. The good disk shows up (sudo fdisk -l) but the 
other does not appear.
Am I sol at this point or is there a way to force the drive to appear?
