hard drive d'not found

By pravirravi ·
I have an external hard drive . 120 GB. USB. When I plug it into new tower with Vista it won't recognize it the disk just makes clicking noise. Seagate website says no drivers are required for drives with USB? I need to get the info off that drive. Any info greatly appreciated.

noise from HDD means terminal failure approaching.
Depends how much you want the data - if you need it and can afford it you can try proffessional recovery, if not you can try yourself - if I had to do it I would pull the enclosure, slave the drive to a pc and try a live CD with recovery software.
