Dropped my external disk

Hi All,

I own a WD My Book and my cat bumped into it and it dropped on the floor. It lights up but i cant get into it, when i connect it to my laptop i hear the sound of the connection but the drive does not show on my computer.

Help please, any ideas?

Sadly a dropped drive is frequently physically damaged and beyond do it yourself recovery. If you are thinking about professional recovery don’t try anything.
