Post Extracting data from broken drive

Recently one of my harddrives has been having problems. It is now to the point where I can get a directory listing after about an hour of hang time. Whenever I try to extract the data I get an I/O error. Is there any way to get this, probably damaged, data off or is there any program for Linux or Windows that can help me with this?

If you don't want to go as far as getting a specialist in I suggest you put the drive in another system and try to "dd" the data to a file and mount the file instead.
