What did you do to it? It looks as if someone ripped the screen out. does iTunes recognize it?

If iTunes doesn't recognize it, I think you're out of luck. Data on iPhones is encrypted.

well it's a long story but the reason it looks like that, is because i tried to remove the hard drive so i can
get the info out.
so their is no orther way to get the info back orther than iTunes?

You may be able to SSH into the device if you were jailbroken..

An iPhone's hard drive as, hippo mentioned is enrypted. Removing the hard drive from the device and trying to retrieve data is probably un-do-able.
