When a hard drive makes a clicking sound, (its known as the click of death), The hard disk is faulty and it is unlikely it will work again.
If you need to recover data from this hard disk there are companies that can help you, but it will cost you an arm and a leg for their services.

My Verbatin 320gb hard drive works perfectly fine with my macbook pro.. However, if i plug it in to my windows vista pc or my ps3... it just doesnt show up. ODD.


do you hear it connect through the speakers when you connect via USB? If you do then click start > right click on computer and click manage. click on disk management and see if you can see the 250gb hard drive. if you can, then right click the drive and click change drive letter, if nothing is in the box indicating it has a drive letter assigned then click on add and choose a letter, if you now see the drive when you open explorer but cant access it then the reason it isnt showing in windows is probably because you have formatted it as a mac filing system.

The harddisk makes noise and doesnt respond the Mac computer


Let the computer run for 15 minutes then switch it off, wait a minute, and then start it up again. If there is a repeated clicking sound then it is more than likely that your hard drive is broken and you will need to take it to a qualified technician to look at it.

Cant get mp3 files from my marantz pmd620 to play on my mac


Well, try copying them to a folder on your computer. Also, make sure that the files are not proteced with DRM. If these fail, open iTunes. Select all of the MP3 files and drag them into your library. That should fix it.
