Hitachi External SimpleDrive 320GB
-I got it when I was in Hawaii brand new. Well, I've dropped it a couple times since then. One day I plugged it in and it just stopped working while I was using it. I was playing a computer game and it stopped. The lights turned off on the bottom of it. Both charging plugs were plugged in. Now, after a month of not working, the lights are on, they don't flicker like they did when I first got it though. The computer still doesn't load anything off of it. I plugged it into my dad's Toshiba Laptop and it still didn't work. Any suggestions?

More than likely, it's dead. Hard drives, like babies, should never, ever be dropped.

If you have data on the drive that you must have, try http://www.Ontrack.com. (Note that it can run into the thousands though).
