Post SATA Data Request Error

Hello everybuddy
I have a MSI 875p Neo and bought a Maxtor 120 GB SATA disc. Then I booted knoppix 3.3, mounted the disc, placed an ext3 fs on the disc and all my data. I used the disc few times but a few days later I suddenly couldn't mount the partition anymore. It kept telling me about a corrput superblock.

so I did: "mke2fs -n /dev/hde1"
It told me where the backups of the superblock are.

Then I tried: "mount -o sb=32768,ro -t ext3 /dev/hde1 hde1".
Linux answered the following:

"hde: read_intr: status=0x59 {DriveReady SeekComplete DataRequest Error}
hde: read_intr: error=0x40 {Uncorrectable Error}, LBAsect=65, sector=2
end_request: I/Oerror, dev 21:01(hde),sector2
EXT3-fs: unable to read superblock
mount: wrong filesystemtype," etc etc ... the rest is just the normal mount-error-message.

I tried to use "-t ext 2" instead of "-t ext3" but it didn't change the result.
Also PartitionsMagic 8 says "bad disc".

Please please help me - the data is pretty important and [shame on me] there is no backup!

Thanks for your help!
