Question about Acomdata 250GB External Firewire HD 250 GB FireWire 400 (1394a) Hard Drive
The feint ticking noise usually indicates a dead hard drive.
The heads are flicking back and forth at random and make the ticking noise you hear.
The drive can still be detected because the physical hard drive and the controller board on it are in reality 2 seperate components working together. So the controller board is also trying to access the hard drive without luck.
If you have not dropped the unit or knocked it over etc, then chances are the controller board is what has died and therfore you still cannot access the drive. You may get lucky in finding a new controller board to replace a failed one and that will also get your data back.
