Make sure you don't plug it into a USB hub. Some USB ports on computers can go bad from time to time. See if you can switch it.
If that doesn't work go to the control panel of your computer. Go to administrative tools. Go to computer management. Go to storage and select disk management. Make sure you see that partition for you hard drive. Format it to NTFS if you have to.

Unfortunately, you have probably lost all the files on the drive. It may be possible to take it to a PC Repair shop and have them run specialist software on it, although the clicking sound indicates a hardware failure, rather than software. You have my deepest apologies, but this does happen... although rarely.

This may be a boot order issue. Can you boot the drive when it is unplugged?
Then, if you can, does it work if you plug it in after windows is up and running?
If the answer to both is yes, then you need to enter your BIOS/Setup as the computer first starts, with the Iomega drive plugged in and select your hard drive as the first boot device.
If you can provide us with more detail, we can give you the specific steps. Either way, comment back and either tell us it work or tells us more about your computer... Make & Model, and we'll do our best to walk you through it.

Does the drive show in Device Manager? Right click on 'My Computer' and select properties, the open device manager.. Navigate down to Disk Drives or Hard Drives, click on the plus sign and see if your drive is listed. If it is, then right click on the drive name and open properties for the drive. Click on the 'Volumes' tab and hit the 'Populate Button'. It may be the disk just needs initialising, then reformatting before you can use it. If it does need initializing, a wizard should appear to guide you through the process!
If this doesn't solve your problem, try using a different USB cable and/or USB ports on your computer, and ensure to unplug all other USB devices other than keyboard & mouse.
