It's not a good sign if a hard disk is making loud clicking noise. It means that the hard drive is about to give up. The clicking sound you can hear is caused by the arm of the hard disk knocking against other components in the hard drive. I recommend to back up your data as soon as possible.

Good luck,

Ryan

USB 2.0 is extremely slow for the purpose of doing direct recording. External drives are best used for backup after a project is done.

Your hard drive is most likely dead, you need to call the manufacturer and have them send you a replacement, the warranty should cover this.

The drive is making a funny clicking noise. Imac doesn't see the drive.


The funny clicking noise you are hearing is usually from a mechanical failure within the hard drive. The drive will need to be replaced at this point. If the drive is still under warranty you will want to process an RMA.

I have a Lacie 500gb


Clicking noise is indicative of hardware failure. You could of course try a different computer, but chances are it's a goner. With hardware failure, the only way I know of rescuing data, is sending it to a data rescue company. Expensive. Which is why you need a minimum of two copies of everything you plan to keep..

Loud clicking noise


You are experiencing the infamous "Click of Death" indication of a failed hard drive.

Most likely, since you cannot access any data on the drive and it has the loud click, the most likely way to recover data from the drive is a data recovery service. www.ontrack.com, www.Drivesavers.com etc.

The bad news it that data recovery is extremely expensive. So, unless this is data you cannot live without, it may not be worth the expense to recover the data. You can contact the data recovery specialists and get an estimate. Last drive quote I saw was a 120 GB drive cost $1200 for recovery.
