Are you saying the disk won't format ? If there is a mechanical fault this would explain both the trouble with formatting and the noise -- in which case you need a new drive. leo2kp a b G Storage January 5, 2010 1:33:29 PM What kind of noise? Is it a clicking sound or a whining sound? If it clicks, is it rapid, or is it in a pattern, like "click click, pause, click click, pause..."? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
