Hello

Ok, we need to troubleshoot this problem in the right manner. Firstly, you need to test if the power cable.

If it works, then you need to have a look at the switch, if it works, then you need to have a look at the following.

If the drive spins up if you power it up, then you might have a problem with the USB connection.

If the drive spins up, but makes a clicking noise, the drive is broken.

Hope this can be of help.

Kind regards
Andrea

If you hear a clicking sound then that might be the sound of a defective harddrive. You could try removing the harddrive from the case and installing it directly into the computer to see if it is working. If it does then it could be the hard drive case power supply is defective. But the clicking sounds like a defective drive. If it is still under warranty then you could get it repaired by western digital...if it is still under warranty then do not open the case or you could void it.
