    Your drive is dying replace is ASAP if it isnt dead already.

    My advice
    -Back up all data to new drive.
    -Format drive to see if that eliminates any clicking sounds.

    Depends on the brand, and if you've recently dropped it of course.

    Maybe Toshiba I own a USB powered one for more than a year now and its still going strong.

    But there is no doubt in my mind that the drive was dropped.

    I didn't drop it. But the drive run fine when the xbox is on. Only when the xbox is off but the power on the xbox is on than it makes that clicking sound.

    I recommend HP 1TB, it works fine for me. I dropped it once, and so a few times, 1/1000 it makes clicking noise but when i restart my xbox it works fine. Still going pretty good actually.
