Question about i-rocks External Hard Drive Enclosure - Silver Aluminum, USB 2.0, IR-9300 3.5in Drive Case
The clicking isn't a good sign; it means the drive is being repeatedly told to start rotating but it either can't start or come up to speed.
There is a problem called 'stiction' meaning that the head(s) are somewhat 'glued' to a disk surface.
Haven't heard of this problem in recent years but it still may be possible and not as likely with the extreme shrinkage of head size..
BTW, the actual drive probably has a different name and model number but would have to be removed to see the label.

sometimes the wires inside the cable will be damaged due to bending or stretching or placing heavy equipment upon the cable,
just replace the cable of the hard disk, when you plugged the external disk drive you got that windows could recognize the USB device change the cable everything should work fine again,
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red-white-green-black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems also make sure the computers Ram and Cmos battery are securely seated
if this fails to fix the problem
you might have to install a usb 2 or 3 card they are cheap and easy to install you can buy these on Ebay very cheap
hope this helps

Pros: Lots of space, very low price, doesn't require outside power
Cons: Sometimes stops working, no firewire (but still a quick transfer speed)
Summary: This doesn't require outside power, but sometimes you need to hook it up to 2 USB ports. The USB cable has 2 heads. Sucks when I only have 3 USB ports on my laptop.
Also sometimes it spontaneously stops communicating with the computer. I don
