First, look for anything broken inside the actual USB hub. Next, try and download the USB drivers from your computer makers website and then restart your computer. Click on "My Computer" and then click "Properties" Next, click on the tab thats says "Hardware" and then click on "Device Manager" Now, click the "+" next to the section that says "Universal Bus Controllers" and then right click and then click properties on the USB and then click the tab that says "Drivers" This will give you the current status of your USB

Sadly no, hard drives have moving parts that go broke really easy especially under shocks. Just take it back to where you bought it from and hope for replacement. Don't mention that it fell off though.

Sorry, but if your hard disk fell down and now isn't regognized by the computer the most possible situation is that the disk is destroyed.

I have a LaCie 320GB hard drive that accidentally fell off my computer tower. The tower itself is on the floor, so it only fell about 20 inches at most, but when it fell, it was in the middle of...

The only thing I can think of to try is to actually remove the drive from the enclosure and connect to the computer internally. Of course that will void the warranty, but if you are technical enough to do that, it may work inside the computer.

In other words, the problem may not be with the drive, but instead with the enclosure.

Although I would guess the drive is shot, as it was writing to the disk when it was dropped.

Sorry for the bad news...

MyBook Fell Over, Now Not Showing As A Drive Letter

Well if your drive is 6 months old you might have a warranty of 1 year. You can make an online RMA request and tell them the drive doesn't work anymore. You don't have to say you dropped it. Just say it's heavily used and you can almost not live without.

But on the other hand if you tell the truth and want it fixed they can be reasonable and repair it for free. From my work and my private experience with WD they have good service. We sent alot of hdd's as RMA. For them is also good commercial if you tell other people about their service.

good luck. Just try to make a RMA. Nice drive by the way.
