If you can hear clicking then I am afraid there is a serious problem with the hard drive.
The noise you can hear is usually known as "the click of death" when referring to hard drives.
Make sure you use ONLY the cable that came with it or a SHORTER one.
Dont connect via a USB hub
Make sure you only user the power supply that CAME WITH IT.
Most common causes are that the drive unit was dropped or mishandled or just plain old age
There is no known cure unless the data is mission critical
In which case you could sent it to a data recovery specialist but this is usually VERY expensive.
If you are advised to place it in a freezer or anything similar then that is up to you
but my advise would be to run from the person who may give this advise.
This is very old fashioned advice and meant for very old types of drives that used to get very hot.
If it a drive that was / is from an external enclosure then you could still use the enclosure and just place a new hard drive in there.
Another way to test it it to remove it from the enclosure and connect it directly to a PC with a suitable interface eg. SATA or IDE.

Is your MacBook as fast as the Lacie Rugged Hard Disk is?
Because solid state drive wasn't available on MacBook Pro at the initial time when it launched. Hard drives on all current Apple laptops are equipped with Sudden Motion Sensor technology. In fact, the Apple laptops that came with Sudden Motion Sensor are: All Intel-based Apple portables such as the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, PowerBook G4 computers starting with PowerBook G4 (12-inch 1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.67/1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (17-inch 1.67GHz), and iBook G4 computers starting with iBook G4 (Mid 2005) have Sudden Motion Sensor technology. You MacBook may not have come with that technology that could be the reason you are unable to connect it.
