Need to recover iPod hard drive after dropping in salt water!?!

I have a iPod with pictures downloaded to it. I dropped the iPod into saltwater at the beach and was wondering if there is a way to recover the drive. Is there a way to remove the drive and use a third party device to power the drive? Any other ideas?

Thanks for your input!!!
