Passport makes clicking noise

Hi everyone!

This is my problem I hope someone knows a solution.

My WD Passport makes a continous clicking noise when I plug it in and is not recognized by the operating system. I tried both on OSX and Win7 and several different USB ports. The usb cable is pretty short so length can’t be the issue. I didn’t drop it either.
Is there any way to get it working or at least recover my data?

If your drive is clicking, it may not be getting adequate power (connection problem) or a hardware fault. Since, you have tried on two different PCs or Mac’s it is highly unlikely you have a connection issue. It is advisable to get a warranty replacement ASAP or a refund. (Refund is preferred in my case as WD is not taking any initiative to resolve ongoing MY Passport related issues.)
