External Portable HD not Recognised

Hi

I have a portable external HD that when plugged via USB into my PC is not recognised. The LED light of the caddy comes on but no sound from the spinning HD. The thing is it does make that clunk clunk sound as soon as the USB cable is inserted into the port - but nothing else happens.

Should I go home this evening via the canal or is there a chink of hope!

Thanks for listening! Your in anticipation, Neil.
