WD My Book 500 GB external drive sometimes clicks, but still works?

Does it seem to work properly and in a timely fashion? If so don't worry about it. Since it is an external drive it may be slightly quieter than you are used to. Laptop HDDs barely make a sound....

Also keep in mind if there is hardly any data on it, it's not going to have to make much noise to begin with.
