Is there an external hard drive data recovery software for Mac?

Hello Apple Support Communities! I have a Western Digital 320GB external hard drive and it currently has 0 bytes available. This has prevented me from even viewing the hard drive on my finder window. I can only see it in the Disk Utility. I have tried repairing the disk and verifying it but neither has worked in letting me view my files. I use the hard drive for movies and now I can't see them! Can anyone recommend free data recovery software so I can delete a few files so that i can view my hard drive? Thank you!
