My book essential 2 tb weird sound?


to all of you.

I have Western Digital My book Essential 2TB drive, actually it is one year old, it is running very fine, but each and after some seconds it sound like “thek-thek”, I can feel this sound and this effect by touching the drive.Also, I downloaded the Utilities from the WD Website for checking the disk, but these utilities dont detect this drive and also my old 1 tb drive.Please help me.Hope to see reply soon.Thank You.




It is very difficult to give you a suggestion on a weird sound based on description. 

But I can recommend that you take a look at this link:
