    Hey i have had the hitachi 7k500 for almost 2 months. Now it is making a clicking noise really strange! Does it mean that i better change the drive because it may fail? What can i do?

    I listened to your files but am having trouble hearing the clicking. I think I heard it but not sure. Does it have a metallic "ting" sound to it?

    If you move the macbook suddenly, you should hear a "click" which is the head parking. You should not be hearing a click like that all the time. If it is a softer click, it could be that some program is accessing data at a steady interval across the disk which will cause a "click" as the drive head stops on a dime and heads back the other way.
