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.

I have a 500GB external SimpleTech HD. Tonight it


If it was running at the time it fell, the heads crashed into the platters, and the buzzing you're hearing is the dents left in the platters spinning by 7200 times a second.
Not good. Likely will need a professional service to recover the data.

Lacie ext HD 500gb turns on but doesnt read


If the spinning sound is not clean anymore there is damage to the hard drive and I doubt it will be easy to get the data out. If the drive still shows up in the disk management you can try to access it with a tool like ddrescue and then run photorec on the created image. If you want somebody else to do it for you there is Data Recovery NYC. Also there is good informaation on hard drive repairs on hddguru.com.

Blinking blue light


the only blue light that i know blinks is the Kmart blue light special .. we need model of things you're working with to properly diagnose.
is it external drive ? with a blue light blinking ? is it connected in usb ? sounds like if its external drive with blinking light could be bad hard disk or bad controller card inside that translates ide to usb.
