Older WD portable HD dropped

HD is a MyBook 500GB (WD5000AAKS) WD Caviar SE16 from 2007.
It has not been used for about 5 years.
Friend of mine dropped it. Want to see if there is anything on HD of value.
Using a new iMac now.
When I plug it the MyBook into an outlet, it runs for 5 SECONDS and quits.
Is there some kind of recovery tool I can buy to achieve that.
Or do I just trash it.

Thoughts anybody??

Hello mckleiner1,

If drive detects in your computer, try to use alternate data recovery tools to recover data.

Otherwise, need to contact data recovery companies for recovery of important data files.
