SOURCE: i accidentally kicked my 1tb buffalo external hard

First try a different usb cable. The cable or the cable connectors may have been damaged as a result of the fall.
If that doesn't work and you are certain that your PC does not recognize the drive, then It appears to me that the fall damaged the delicate mechanical devices inside the drive and you will have to replace it.

Hard drives cannot withstand rough handling. If a hard drive is only dropped about 1 or 2 feet and it lands on a soft surface such as a carpet it MAY survive the fall. But if one falls from a higher elevation, (say 6 feet) onto a hard surfaced floor, it's almost a sure bet that the drive's internal mechanisms are permanently damaged.

To find out for sure, take it to a PC technician and have it tested. It should only cost you a few dollars.

If you believe that this information was helpful to you, please return to the FixYa website and rate my response to your question.

SOURCE: LaCie Big Disk Extreme 1TB Hard Drive - continuous beep, no power

Hi, Lacie isn't very forthcoming with beep codes but it definitely means one of the two. You can try moving the hard drive into a new enclosure, if it works it was the enclosure, if not the HDD. Hate to say it but warranty on these drives is a moot point the moment unique data is stored on them as you can't even diagnose the problem properly without voiding it and no drive manufacturer will waranty data. If you have no unique data and it's under warranty, send it back. If you have unique data on it that you value, take it to a local computer store and have them move the drive to a new external enclosure and test it. If it works, you're done. If it doesn't, you've confirmed that the HDD is faulty and you will need the help of a data recovery Pro. If the latter is the case, reply by commenting here with your location (country, state city) and I'll recommend a closeby facility for you. Chris

SOURCE: ps3 and 1tb hard disk

This one may only have one possible solution.

You probably have heard that the PS3 will support up to a terabyte hard drive. That is true for most of them.

However, depending on the version of PS3, you may have to see if it is possible to flash the BIOS of the PS3. I talked to a Sony representative about the hard drive and it will support a 1 terabyte hard drive.

Contact sony to see if it is possible to flash the PS3 BIOS so it will recognize the drive.

3. Hard drive are assemble in a clean room environment and have very precise tolerances are delicate devices. dropping one from just a foot from the floor will damage it.
