The clicking noise is the reader arm jumping across platters on your hard drive you have a dirty hard drive first clean all the dust from your computer specifically from around your hard drive using a high powered sucksion vacuum cleaner or a fine air blower from a air compressor making sure there is no moisture in the air lines then give the hard drive a firm tap on the side to free it up
hope this helps good luck

I HAVE TWO SEAGATES THEY WONT COME ON IT JUST KEEP MAKING A CLICKING NOISE


You are obviously talking about hard drives. The clicking noise you describe is the worst noise you would want to hear from a hard drive. A clicking noise is the sound of the read/write head hitting the stop at the center of the drive. Your drives are broken and need to be replaced.

Clicking noise and wont read any disks, it just says open tray after it stops making noises


Its your drive. The clicking noise are the little gears inside the drive. They probably jumped or they just broke. Get a new one or you might find someone on craigslist.com to sell you a used.
