strange clicking on my hard drive in my TVIX HD M-

  erkmatrix 16:39 11 Aug 07

My new TVIX HD M-4000P just started to make a strange clicking sound, I was putting on it some music when it just got stuck when I was moving some song from 1 file to another so I had to unplug it and started making a clicking noise like the drive is stuck. Can this be somehow repaired, I've put loads of my albums on and it took ages and would hate to have lost all that I have put on it.

Can anyone help.

after about 10 mins of turning it on again the clicking stops but the drive can't be detected on the pc at all.

Even if it's not one of these. start Backing-up. Fast.

Are you sure that it was the Drive that made the Noise?

How old in the Machine?

Yes its definatly the drive, the machine was bought last summer but works fine , the external hard drive in my TVIX is definatly the clicking, but as I say it stops clicking after a while.

I have tried to connect it to my laptop but comes up with usb device malfunction and tell me one of the usb ports has something unrecognized in it. It now does this also when I plugged it back into my pc, both computers have this come up telling me the device is malfunctioned.
