Hi,

Sound from the hard disk indicates that the drive is about to or already physically damaged however, it only gives the indication and not the confirmation of physical damage. Before coming to any conclusion, i would like to ask you, is your drive visible in disk management. If yes, then what status it is showing.

Answer of above question will help us to provide your best possible solution.

It seems that the drive is physically damaged but still there is one resort left to solve this issue. As it is still showing in device manager then i would suggest you update the driver software of the drive. There might be chances that the drive software is not compatible with the system. Just do right click on the drive and click "update driver". Hope this will help you to get your drive recognized by the system.
