If you can open the drive enclosure, and stick the hard drive in to your computer it should work, unless the drive itself is damaged.

Keep in mind that could void the warranty.

I believe that dropping it may also void the warranty.

Yeah pull that baby out and hook it up internally to see if the drive still works.
