Default External hard drive...

Well, the chances are it's broken, but I thought I'd still give the forums a shot.

I dropped my external harddrive/media player while I was playing a file from it. When I switch in it starts up, the fan makes no noise but is running, the drive makes a clicking sound and eventually makes a dying noise to put it simple lol, any ideas? My idea is that it's ruined.

Sounds dead to me. Does it still show up in My Computer and can you get your files off of it?

If it's still under warranty, you could apply for an RMA and get a replacement.
