      Being the clutz i am i managed to drop my external hard drive last night onto concrete. it had my last couple of days uni work on it, which wasn't on my laptop. sucks to be me!

      Anyway i plug the hard drive into my laptop, the red light comes on and it flickers for the first minute and makes a little noise then the noise stops but the light still stays on.
      The computer says that the drivers a installed correctly and its ready to use, but it doesn't pop up with auto play, or in my computer.

      Any ideas whats happened, or is it destined for the bin?

      btw I'm not at one with technology, so Lehman's terms would be appreciated!
