How does freezing it help?
A lot of times when a hard drive is jostled enough to stop reading data, it is due to a component overheating after a certain amount of time when the HD is spinning.

Freezing the drive, or cooling it off really, allows the component that is overheating to remain cool long enough to transfer data using the drive. I've seen an article on the internet where someone was actually 'icing' a hard drive like a wound while trying to get the majority of their data recovered. It worked.
