Seagate external hard drive. I am hoping that the problem is only a loose internal connection at the point where the lead connects to the drive. But at the moment there is no way of getting the drive to communicate with the laptop.

My external hard drive does not show on computer but light comes on. It’s a Samsung external hard drive not appearing when plugged into computer. Was dropped but worked fine for several days after.
My USB external hard drive says that it cannot be read on the computer & it needs to be ‘formatted’ but this means ‘erasing ALL files’ currently on the USB device so I have refused formatting it. Unfortunately I can not access the files I need to now and the drive is unresponsive.
