Question about Archos ARCDisk 20GB 4200rpm 480Mbps USB 2.0 USB 2.0 External (500455FT) Hard Drive
Clicking noise means hard drive physical damage. When that happens the data inside hard drive is lost.
If data is very important it can be sent to a recovery facility with a clean room 100, that is a special room where hard disk can be opened. The repair is over $600, and does not guarantee success.
Unless the data inside is really important, data inside hard disk (when clicking) is considered beyond recovery.

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers or
if you can see your usb but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver
sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems
if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps
