[linux-lvm] rescue data after hd crash

sorry if this is a double post, but i think the first post didn't succeed
due to some registration race condition.
so here's my problem:
I have create a volume group with 4 250GByte harddisks with an ext3 file
system on the 1TB result.
now the third harddisk failed and the volume group is "dead" - obviously.
lvscan tells me (like any other lv*, pv* command):
Couldn't find device with uuid 'A57CS6-SFlw-1ROR-uIvO-cX2o-OE2g-N3SVZN'.
Couldn't find all physical volumes for volume group media_volgrp.
in my understanding many of the files should still be intact (those on the
first two disks), and I would like to rescue these files.
i found no hints about such a crash recovery.
my approach would be to "fake" the third disk, as see what the filesystem
makes out of it.
any help is welcome.
