Yeah, the click of death is a bad thing.
Did you lose a lot of data from that drive and have you tried the ole pop it in the freezer for a bout 5 mins and try to access the data.
A friend of mine told me a bout it..as a skeptic, I was suprised when it worked on a drive that was no longer accessible.
A few years ago I used a hammer on a clicking HD. I powered up the HD and began hammering. Just after a couple of blows the clicking sound was fixed. For good :-D
Too bad I didn't have a camcorder back then. The HD make some funny death groans and it would have made a great video.
mine was doing the same yesterday, took it to pieces, cleaned dust out of it, working ok today... wich is pretty cool, i have two more harddrives but from the stone age with 30gig memory lol
but i don't consider it reliable, i will substitute it soon...
