Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
Most likely the heads are damaged...at least one of them are. When drives are dropped it's pretty common for them to damage the heads. If Head 0 is still able to read, the drive may calibrate and even be readable to a certain extent. Eventually the damaged heads can make it to where the drive is inaccessible.
