Hello,my hard disc recently fell and has become a raw disc. it asks me to format it each time i try opening it. I have 1Terabyte worth of data and need a solution so that i do not format it.

"Fell" as in dropped physically and damaged?

You need to try one of the many packages that will attempt data recovery from a damaged hard drive. Try Clonezilla, or search the forums for "drive recovery".

There is also a utility floating around that can re-build the partition info, but it seems likely that you have more problems than just that.

Good luck.
