New IBM DeskStar 180GXP makes loud clicking noise

  Jamesy 14:12 27 Jan 03

Every so often, my new IBM DeskStar 180GXP 180 gig makes a loud clicking noise... it seems to be like every few minutes on the dot. A few minutes pass, click, a few more minutes, click....

It's quite annoying. This is a new drive I'm not sure what could be wrong with it. I can't see anything actually wrong with the drive apart from that it makes this annoying noise. There is no data loss.

Any ideas?

If I were you, I would return it as faulty. Even though it may not be giving errors at the moment, making noises such as you describe are not right.

Unfortunately, IBM have a very poor reputation for hard drives at the moment. Get your money back and buy a different brand!
