I have an external DVD/ CD drive for my laptop (samsung NC10) which I accidently dropped. The drive cannot be detected through all laptops and computers. It there any way to get it working again??

Depends which bit is broken. I would dismantle the external drive case and see if any physical damage is obvious. Either the drive in the box -- or the box and its electronics can probably be salvaged.

With any luck a cable has fallen off.
