could be a failed drive or corrupted partition
try using a different usb cable.. the clicking might mean is not getting enough power...
looks like you have been using the drive across different platforms and there's a higher risk of corruption that way
check on disk management to see if the drive is seen... if it is, you will need a Data Recovery software

I'm in the same boat..... Passport is not showing on any computer either. Used two different cables and nothing. WD will replace the drive however, I have files on this drive that I need. How can I get these files off the drive??

Does the drive show in Disk Management and what does is say about drive? Does it have a drive letter and is it online? Recuva http://www.piriform.com/recuva is free recovery software. If the drive doesn't show in Disk Management most of the recovery software won't work.

Did you try giving it a drive letter? Does is say anything in Disk Management about the drive like Raw? Look down where it's shown in bars.
