Question about Western Digital My Book Essential Edition (WDG1U5000N) 500 GB Hard Drive
If the drive is making the "Click of Death" then most likely the only way to recover the data is to send the drive to a data recovery specialist (DriveSavers, On-Track et al) recovery of data can be pricy.
It is possible the drive enclosure itself is bad, you could try moving the drive to another enclosure and see if it works there, but that is a stretch
