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!!! ) :-(

When my 1999 ford econline is on it makes a ding boos 5 times I think its the airbags because the check airbag light was on but know its off and makes that ding noise


When you turn the key on the airbag light should come on for the bulb test. If the bulb doesn't work, it will beep to let you know the bulb is out. The only way to stop it from beeping is to replace the bulb.

My WD external hard drive does not stay recognized on my computer. When I first plug it in it makes the ding/beep noise and shows up on "my computer" but after a few seconds it makes the ding/beep noise...


Try the hard drive on another computer to see if it is the external or a laptop interface problem. There are EIDE/SATA to usb adapters that you can connect a hard drive to that the computer will then read as an external hard drive. The problem with external HDDs is the usb interface built into them, these are mounted on controller cards and that is ususally where the failure occurs.

Hard drive arm not engaging click click click then ding ding din


The drive is pretty much ruined if you removed the top and exposed it.
The only chance of recovery is to send it to a specialist. You can not fix this drive, nore get the data off. They may have to remove the plates and install it in another drive to recover... or replace the electronics.

In anyway you look at this, it will be a very costly thing to recover data.
Sorry, but can not help you with this.

When disk does a noise like click click, that meant the hard drive heads are broken. Harddrive hardware is broken, data cannot be recover easily when it is like that , if the HDD contained very imprtant data you can send it an HDD data recovery.
Here is an HDD data recovery company in uk

This is the picture of a broken head:
