Question about Iomega (33215) 250 GB Hard Drive
How are you?
To be honest, I must say that the clicking (or ticking) sound is not a good sign... :/
It usually means that the drive is practically dying - or dead already .
With that said, make sure the power adapter is connected properly to the drive as well as the USB cable.
Also, try using a different USB port on your computer, preferably a rear port (rather than the port at the front - on a desktop computer); Try using another USB cable as well.
If still unsuccessful, your last resort, with no great chances, is to disassemble the hard drive itself from the enclosure case and connect it directly to your computer...
If none had worked for you, I'm afraid you'll have to bid your drive farewell.

Put your hard drive back into your system, listen to the sound after you have put it back.
If its spinning sound you heard, after you have put it back, it means the hard drive is still good, all you need do is to change the case.
But if after you put it back, the sound you get is a cracking sound or the kind of clicking sound your hard drive is making, it means the hard drive is bad and will need to be replaced.
