Hello, my name is Rusty. Yes, you can take the hard drive out of the machine and take it to a data recovery shop to have them get the video. I used to live in that area, here is the shop that I recommend:

E-Man Data Recovery

(###) ###-####/p>(###) ###-####/p>(###) ###-####/p>

They should be able to pull the video files from your hard drive. You also have another option:

That machine uses a SATA hard drive. You can get a SATA dock from Best Buy or Fry's (if you have one) for less than $20. It plugs into your computer's USB port, and will open the drive like a mass storage device, and you'll be able to access the files.
