    Hi there bostonjl,

    That is really unpleasant. :(

    Externals could make clicking sounds due to the following reasons:
    - Not enough power supplied to the drive. You can attach it with a different cable to another SATA port or even computer.
    - Some physical failure.

    If the issue persists after attaching the drive with a different cable, then you can either RMA the product, or contact a data recovery company if the data stored over there is really important.

    Cheers,
    D_Know_WD :)
