      It could be as this depends on the Circuitry in the unit

      It could be some unshielded cables being used which are picking up some stray EMF and causing this to happen as well.

      Actually there are so many possibilities that it’s hard to track down what’s happening here so you’ll need to start to disconnect things and see if the problem persists.

      Definitely sounds like low voltage electrical noise

      If this USB reader has unshieled wires, or some other component close to the reader has unshiled wires, that clicking sound may be a result of EMF crosstalk generated by weak electro-magnetic fields. Try moving the reader to a different PC and see if the problem persists to rule out whether it is the PC or the reader itself.
