I think some data might be transferring (red light) but I can't access it. I show a local disk "G" showing up with the other drives. When I try to open it says the request could not be performed because of an I/O error. Is there any way to fix this?

when a disk makes a clicking noise, in most cases (99%) that means that the disk has crashed. i'm sorry to inform you that the data you had on the disk is lost, unless you are prepared to pay lots of money to a company that takes the disk apart to retrieve data manually.
If this is a new drive, you will need to format it before it will show up in My Computer.
To do so, start by right-clicking on My Computer, then choose Manage from the menu. Click on Disk Management, you should see a list of drives in your system. Your new drive will show up as unallocated space, right-click on that and choose New Partition, choose the size of the partition you want, and choose to format it.
Once the partitioning and format process is complete, the drive should show up in My Computer under a new drive letter.

My nx2 is working again after having the "red light/blue light/I/O Error" problem. I just:
1. turned off my computer
2.unplugged the HD,
3. took out the HD from the enclosure and plugged it back into the enclosure,
4.started up my computer without the HD being plugged in
5. after my computer had been on for a minute, I plugged the HD in and my computer recognized it and had the proper mixture of red and blue light coming from the HD, indicating it's working properly.
try starting the pc with the unit plugged in.
then after the pc is completely started and the desktop is set then directly restart it manually (not by cliking on restart) then allow to scandisk all the drives, do not remove the external unit. it will alos scan and may be the file system problem will be gone. and u will get ur data. if not success then tellme. i will give u another guarranteed suggestion,. ok.
