I have a WD 1TB external hard drive, supposed new without documentation. The light comes on and there are soft noises from within, but when I connect to my laptop, the drive is not recognized.

Thank you
Noise from drive indicates that it is physically damaged and that's why it is not recognizing in your system. Time to buy the new drive.
