WD My Passport for Mac - Beeping Sound

I keep getting the soft consistent beeping sound from my Hard Drive.

It’s less than a year old and barely used.

Please advise.

Hi, be sure to use the same USB cable that came with the hard drive and avoid using USB hubs. Also check on the disk management window to see if it’s recognized there.

Beeping sounds are common along drives that have spin up issues caused either by stuck heads or failed spindle bearings. WD has great bearings, and we never see them fail. But stuck heads are very common for any type of hard drive. This videoshows exactly what is happening with the drive. This can happen to any hard drive brand out there:
