If you can hear clicking then I am afraid there is a serious problem with the hard drive.
The noise you can hear is usually known as "the click of death" when referring to hard drives.
Make sure you use ONLY the cable that came with it or a SHORTER one.
Dont connect via a USB hub
Make sure you only user the power supply that CAME WITH IT.
Most common causes are that the drive unit was dropped or mishandled or just plain old age
There is no known cure unless the data is mission critical
In which case you could sent it to a data recovery specialist but this is usually VERY expensive.
If you are advised to place it in a freezer or anything similar then that is up to you
but my advise would be to run from the person who may give this advise.
This is very old fashioned advice and meant for very old types of drives that used to get very hot.
If it a drive that was / is from an external enclosure then you could still use the enclosure and just place a new hard drive in there.
Another way to test it it to remove it from the enclosure and connect it directly to a PC with a suitable interface eg. SATA or IDE.
If it IDE make sure that the master / slave jumper is set correctly and also double check your power connection

You dont need jumper settings for sata hard drive, the sata ports on *********** board have the configuration, just connect the new hdd to the 2nd sata port.
