The clicking sound is normally associated with a failing drive, if you cannot get your data thru the normal process there are recovery services that can get it for you but these are very expensive and can take awhile.

I have heard from some good sources that putting the drive in the freezer for several hours then immediately installing it sometimes works but its hit or miss
