"hard drive noise" is much to broad. Need a better description. However, if the noise is constant then it is probably due to bad bearings. If so, it can't be fixed by the user.

Drive noises are typically a common and needed noise. Most run via magnetic (voice coil) technology and that is noisy. Slow play back may be related to connection, usually you need stuff on your harddrive (C:\) to avoid access delays.

Is it an external drive?

If it is, open the external hard drive cover, remove the hard disk inside, and fix it back. Try again and let's see what happens.

If it still does not work, insert the external drive into the computer, feel the hard drive if it spins/vibrate from inside or if it makes a cracking noise.

If it spins/vibrate, it means the hard disk is still working. In that case, you have to get another external drive case/cover.

But if it makes cracking noise, then it means the hard drive is damaged and you need to get another one.

Lastly, if its not an external drive, the same applies because, its still all about hard drive.

I wish you all the best.
