    it was running fine for 6 months ... then just yesterday i accidently droped it (1 feet in height ) then my comp crash that night so i turned off everything and went to sleep, woke up this morning, turned on everything and my comp could not pick up the external hard drive -

    the hard drive first blink blue...while making this robotic sound...then it stop making sound then begin blinking red to blue - i read the site manual and it said red blinking light mean its writing /etc something ....but it doesnt look like it =/ or is not the case

    i tryed restarting in many different situation....google the "red blinking light" but couldnt find any who had similar situation...

    I'd take the enclosure apart and try connecting the actual hard drive inside your computer to see if you can read the data off it.

    So the hard drive did not work internally either? Same clicking noise? If so then there isn't much you can do, the hard drive is damaged and you'll just need to replace it.
