Okay, I've tried the dd_rescue method that was outlined for me, and it

fail all operations until its cooled down.


you can try with http://www.gnu.org/software/ddrescue/ddrescue.html
instead of dd_rescue
make it use a logfile on a different device
when the source drive gets too hot let it rest awhile, then restart
using the log file.
