1TB My Passport Acting Funky

All of the sudden, my PC can’t open my Passport.  It doesn’t recognize it under “My Computer,” but it does show up under Device Manager and under Devices.  Once in a while, it will show up under the Computer as “N” drive, but no info on size is available.  Also,  I can hear a slight click in the hard drive itself, almost as if something was opening and closing.  Is this thing ready for the land fill?  Please let me know if this has a home remedy for fixing.  Thanks.

Try a different USB cable. Make sure the cable you are using is not longet than the original. Make sure you are not using a hub to connect.  If they don’t help it may be a pending drive failure.
