Did you bang your disk or did you pull the cable in the middle of a read/write operation?
 
When a drive gets this way it is fragile! What you do next could make recovery harder. So you don't want to alter it too much until you have copycopied off as mustmuch as you can (just in case).

If you banged the drive while it was running you most likely crashed the heads and a part of the disk platters are damaged.
 
Now you're between a rock and a hard place:
 
* The best answer here is to send your drive out to a data recovery service. Even then they can only go so far and it will be expensive!
* If you can copy off the important files you need then you could take the chance in repairing the drive via software but that will only work if the drive media and heads are in good shape.
* Lastly, you could try to get it replaced directly from Western Digital. But they won't recover the data under warranty.
