Hi
Can anybody help me I have an Hitachi 1 TB External Hard Drive which keeps clicking only if it is connected to my laptop. I have tried changing the USB cable and that doesn't work.

if you hear clicks it means the drive head is hitting against the drive platter making a nice scratch, you need a new hard drive

" keeps clicking only if it is connected to my laptop"

connect it to something else and backup all files... hitachi has a 3 r warranty on some drives.
