I reecently took the hard drive out of my sky box to upgrade it (500gb Pipeline to 1TB Barracuda) and when i got it out and put into my pc nothing could pick it up including the bios. I tried all the sata ports and checked everything and found a scratch on the back pcb. It also makes clicking noises when powered up. Help?

Probably dead. The clicking noise is usually the hard drive failing to gain speed.

Well zeph_yr was close. The clicking sound is actually caused by a damaged actuator arm in the hard drive. If there is important data on that drive you cannot go without I would look into a data recovery service as the data is still there. If it does not contain any important data I would check to see if it is still under warranty and try to get it replaced. If it is out of warranty the trash is a good place for it.
