Hard disk clicks won't spin

Clicking Hard drive When a hard disk makes a clicking sound and the computer does not detect it then the hard disk is faulty. This is commonly known as "The click of death".
There is no way of fixing this hard drive, if you need to recover your data, then there are companies that can recover data off faulty hard drives BUT it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

If the computer cannot boot up then to retrieve your data then remove the hard drive from the computer and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter. Then plug the adapter into a working computer's USB port. This computer will detect this as an external storage device. You can then click on this device and open the folders and files to copy and backup your data files.

The hdd does spin but is not detected

A clicking noise from a hard drive typically indicates that the drive is about to fail or has failed completely. If the drive is still under warranty, contact Western Digital for a replacement drive. If not, you will need to purchase a new hard drive. There are services to recover some of the data off of a failed hard drive, but the rates can be quite high.
