Is my mybook on its way out?

Having plugged it in tonight, It is making a chugging noise while copying data. Is this normal, as I have not used it much, or is it going to die on me? If so, anyone had any experience dealing with Western Digital?

I take it this is a Hard Drive!

yes, it is, although now it is idle it is quiet, maybe it is the vibration on the desk.I'll keep an eye on it for the next few weeks but for now will tick as resolved.

Thanks,

Jake

I have a My Book, sometimes mine makes more noise when copying data than it normally does, and the same applies to my PC's drive as well, it may be an idea to see/try a defrag on the My Book and see if this makes any difference. I don't think you have anything to worry about to be honest.
