My Western Digital Caviar WD1600BB 160 GB hard drive in my dvd recorder is making a clicking sound, how do I test to see if it is the heads that are faulty or the circuit board?


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. If you are hearing a loud ticking or high pitch noise on the hard drive it means that the hard drive will be defective anytime soon. If you can take out the hard drive and backup the files on you computer and replace the hard drive on the computer. Loud noise can be caused by a bad spindle or the hard drive or the hard drive is frying inside the dvd recorder.
If you have questions please let me know. Thanks

I have a Lacie 1TB Big Disk Extreme. It has recently developed a loud regular whirring noise, that goes on and off every few seconds. What should I do? Thanks! Adrian


The irregular clicking or chunking sound usually indicates that your hard drive is suffering from physical damage. immediately backup your data, your hard disk will die soon.

This problem can be caused by the following:

  • Head Crash
  • Bad Sectors
  • Mechanical Faults

If your hard disk is under warranty then you contact your manufacturer.
Hard disk drive occasionally produces a whirring sound when it searches for a file which is heavily fragmented. This is caused by the spinning platters as the read-write heads zoom back and forth to access the sectors where the data is stored. It is important to distinguish the whirling sound from the clicking sound. This whirring sound can be reduced by periodically defragmenting your hard drive. Defragmenting reorganizes the scattered data on the hard drive to make files and programs run faster. It relocates the commonly accessed files to the beginning of the hard disk where data can load at a faster rate.

This means that the WD could is trying to connect to the computer but looses the connection. Try plugging the usb cord in another usb slot on your computer. Or try using another cable. Make sure the WD is not giving out any red led light on the device.

Drive is nor recognized on my machine Rhythmic buzzing almost sounds like an alarm emanating from drive.


Sounds like the HDD is malfunctioning , with all
spinning hardware a resonant buzzing is common
unless its loud , open the closure make sure that its
secured to the housing and all connection are secured
while its on place a unsharpened pencil on it to your
ear listen for a spinning sound it should be steady
an unsteady spinning sound means the motor is
malfunctioning and ready to die , a clicking sound means the units heads are too ready to die and
sometimes the closures malfunction , if you can remove the unit from its closure and set its jumpers
to slave and hook it up to a PC you can troubleshoot
the closure from there and the unit itself

WHAT DOES THIS NOISE MEAN?


More that likely the drive is dying?? :-( ..

Usually the 'click, click , clicking' noise is the 'actuator' trying to read the drive.. One old trick that workings sometimes is to remove the HardDrive from the enclosure. Put it into several ziplock baggies and put it in the freezer over night (colder the better). quickly remove the drive and put it into a computer. Sometime you can read the drive for about 10-15minutes. But this trick only works about 20% of the time.. The only other option is DriverSavers.com (about $2k -- Yikes!!! ) :-(

Loud Humming


It's possible a fan or a hard drive is going bad. When the bearings in those devices start to go out they a start making noises like that.
