Hi! My iOmega external hard is of 1.5TB capacity. It must have been only a month old and it's suddenly stopped working!!! I can hear its motor start when i plug it in and I can also see the blue light turn on but then it starts making a ticking noise and the motor stops. Although the blue light is still on, the computer doesnt detect the hard disk and it isnt working!! Please help

The hard disk sounds like it is about to die. If it's still under warranty, I would have the manufacturer fix it for you.
