The click sound is the head parking itself. The cause for it is the concern. Could be a power issue or possible sign of death. Try a different cable and usb connector anyways. I have a passport that doesn't receive correct power from some of my longer usb cables with extension cables. The result of using the usb extension with my passport is failure to mount and an audible clicking sound.
