I have a Seagate 1TB Barracuda 32mb Hard Drive (ST31000528AS) and ever since i got it, it's been making a lot of clicking noises. It's not constantly clicking, it clicks when the hard drive is at rest and i want to open or a particular application needs to access it. Basically, if i open a file on the hard drive when at rest, the file will not open right away, it will stall for 2-5 seconds, then make one click and then the file finally opens... I heard that for Seagate hard drives, they are always making noises and it's normal and not just my particular one... but it isn't normal that the hard drive has such a long response when accessing a file! =/ PLEASE HELP!

Bare in mind that a huge batch of the Barracuda drives were cursed with a dodgy firmware bug, which I've heard can brick the HD. I'd get in touch with their support just to make sure you have the correct firmware,
