Question about Western Digital 320GB MyBook External USB 2.0 Hard Drive
Some tickling noise coming from my external hard disk and it is not detected by pc
This is never a good sign!! Hard drives only 'tick' when they are bad, or going bad. Some popular techniques for attempting to temporarily fix the drive include freezing it for several hours before trying again, standing the drive on it's thin edge, or lightly tapping it with a SMALL hammer or the **** end of a screwdriver as you power it on. Some have also had success (myself included) removing the controller circuit board and replacing it with the controller of an identical drive, preferably from a drive from the same lot as your broken drive. However I don't recommend this to most people, it is an advanced technique and easy to screw up! Also not likely the problem if the drive is clicking.
If you can get it to work again this way, copy your data from it IMMEDIATELY then recycle the drive and never use it again!
A final option would be to send the drive to a data recovery specialist, but be forewarned this can be VERY expensive.
