Question about SimpleTech SimpleDrive Pininfarina 320GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - Blue
It is possible that the hard drive have loosed contact, or has shifted from its right position inside the hard drive case when it dropped on the ground. Open the hard drive case in order to gain access to the hard drive inside it. Remove the hard drive and fix it back into the case, then try again.
If it still doesn't respond, then it means the fault is either from the hard drive or the hard drive case.
Look for someone that can borrow you an hard drive case, fix your hard drive inside it and if work, then it means you will need to buy another case. but if it doesn't work, then it means the hard drive is damaged.
If the hard drive is damaged, then it means you need to buy another hard drive as it cannot be repaired or recovered. Its a taboo for a hard drive to fall on the ground. But in this situation, I believe the fault should be from the hard drive case since the case prevented the hard drive from falling on the ground directly.
