Just a thought-

Make sure all your connections are hooked up before turning anything on. Turn on the external drive BEFORE turning on your computer.

SOURCE: lacie 500 gig external hard drive

Yikes 500 GB is a lot of data to lose, especially if you have no back-ups. In case you have never seen the inside of one, a hard drive is a series of metallic/magnetized platters on a spindle and a series of arms (resembling those of a record player) for each platter which record and retrieve data in the storage sectors formatted on the drive platters. The top 3 enemies of hard drives are: Impacts - Heat - Magnetic Objects . . . these top 3 all prove fatal to your drives operation. I am guessing the impact from when you dropped your HDD jarred the arms from their position or even may have broken the reader head. The bigger the storage of the drive, the more fragile they seem to be. Once an arm is dislodged or broken, the drive cannot function... the damage is mechanical. An arm knocked from its point of origin when not in use or jarred durring data access can no longer properly know where data is or fins its original position. Dont waste time on file recovery programs if this is the case, they require an operational drive to scan leftover data. . if the damage is to one of the platters, you might have luck with a software recovery application, but the process is very very slow and will take days. You can try taking it to data recovery experts and it will cost you usually around $1.00-5.00 per gigabyte - pretty costly. My advice, See if you can RMA the drive if it was under warranty) to get a new drive . . . or even have the data retrieved if it was that important . . . other than that, move on and be more careful with external drives in the future. Look for drives that have good impact ratings if you have a propensity for clumsiness, even then, handle with care.

External hard drive will not power on

The adapter case could be faulty but the hard drive may be OK.
Remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Then plug the adapter into a working computer's USB port and if this computer sees it as an external hard drive and you can open the folders and files, then the hard drive is OK and you only need to buy a new USB hard drive adapter case.
If the hard drive is faulty, and the data is very important to you, there are companies that can retrieve data from faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

Seagate free agent pro 500 gig external hard drive NOT RECOGNIZED

You better check with the Seagate people. This seems to be a problem with the casing. And since you're under warranty, you can get a replacement.
