Seagate drive dead :(

glyph
I had a ST31500341AS installed and working for several months. Suddenly last night it failed and hung my machine. On reboot, BIOS fails to load the drive and erroneously calls it ST_M13FQBL.

Pre-installed firmware was CC1H.

Anyone know whether this is fixable? I have irrecoverable data on that drive. :'(

Is this an external drive? (E.g. do I have a new brand of external harddrives to add to my "avoid" list?)

Internal. But I don't think it matters; the same drives are probably bundled into external enclosures too.
