If your xbox dropped while it was running, then more than likely the hard drive is damaged, and you won't be able to recover the data.You may be able to disassemble the Hard Drive and connect it to your PC or laptop by following the instructions here:

It sounds like your hard drive is toast.
More than likely you've lost everything on it. If you were sync'd with the cloud, then you should still be OK, otherwise, your data will be hard to recover.
You can open the hard drive case, and check the internal connections as it could be as simple as a loose connection. If the case has never been opened, then you'll find one security screw hidden under the Microsoft logo.
This happened to my first 360, and in my case, it was a hardware failure. You can call Microsoft and hope your warranty is still good, and they'll fix it free of charge, but if its not, then you have to pay a fee.
