Hi there, I have two external drives, one 300GB Seagate, and a recently purchased one mentioned in the thread title. I'm not an expert on external hard drives, and am looking for some advice on what is the norm for the sound an external hard drive makes. My Seagate naturally makes a noise when being accessed and written to, however, with this new LaCie drive, whenever I access it or write to it, it makes a clicking sound, which, while brief, is mildly irritating and unpleasantly loud. Also, the drive in all other respects, seems to be functioning flawlessly. Is this level of audible response normal? And before everyone starts bashing LaCie drives, please don't! Thanks.
