I have a WD800BB.
Jumper settings starting closest to the power connector.
CS for Cable Select
SL for Slave
MA for Master
The last two position are not marked.
Hope that helps.

if you can hear the clicking sound then there is nothing a normal person can do.
unless you have a spare HDD open it and replce the platter. but it is very risky
if you need the data in it badly, take it to the nearest service centre of samsung. they will recover your data within 1 month. but you will have to pay for every MB they recover.

Check your jumpers on the hard drive. DON'T leave it connected very long if the jumpers are not set for master / slave (furthest away/ closest to the IDE port on the computer or it can mess up the circuit boards on one or both drives! If you are using only one hard drive, set the jumper(s) for "cable select" (often abbreviated CS). If it still doesn't detect the drive, the drive may not have an "active" partition on it. You can solve that by booting to your OS installation CD -- assuming you have one!

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
hope this helps
