I'm not expert but try freeze therapy. I did it in on mine and it did not work but I hear it does rarely. Basically all you do is wrap the harddrive in a plastic bag tightly to prevent any form of moister entering, leave it in for about two days and plug it back it. It's said that sometimes if the lense is shaken out of place the cold would make the metal go back to original placing. This means you plug the harddrive in while still frozen, just something try before throwing it away or replacing it.

Again I'm using a Seagate Freeagent Desktop 500GB external harddrive.

is damaged my friend. Hard drives are very, very delicate pieces of equipment. The disk is paper thin and any sudden
jarring, especially dropping it creates a warp in the drive. Unplug it
to prevent further damage. Don't worry in many cases you can have the
data retrieved from your hard drive by using this online company that I
