Hi wes_unruh. Unfortunately that "click" , known as the click of death, can mean many things. It could be a head, System Area, scratched platters, etc. First, remove the hard drive from its casing. Then connect the hard drive internally to a computer. You might still get the click. Try a diferent angle and try many many times. Check the logic board for any signs of damage. Please DO NOT start swapping parts because there´s aligment, firmware issues and you can make things worse if you need to do Data Recovery. If you had important informacion, you need to take it to a data recovery company such as Ontrack or ADS, because they have the right equipment such as Deepstar, PCI3000 in order to fully retrieve your files. IT IS an expensive process. I hope this helps. Please do not forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our free support today. Thank you :D

How do I find a repair person for a LaCie 1 TB external drive?

it may be a bad drive and depending what is on it it would be very evpensive to fix. you can remove the drive from the case and plug it in another computer with a spare sata slot and try it. if it wont spin up it is bad. only three definits in life: death, taxes and hard drive crashes. sorry hope that it will work on anothe computer.

Hard drive is no good. If new replace under warranty. Given the bad luck you have had with this brand, you might consider replacing it with a different unit.
