Hi Sam,
If your laptop is showing error "Hard Drive is not Detected" then their may be several issue. check these things,
1. Check BIOS Set-up
2. Check Hard Drive Cable
3. Replace the Hard Drive

If the error is not fix then you can use a reliable third party tool that can easily recover entire data from you hard disk.

maybe your laptop or cpu knocked against a hard object and th HDD loosened up, open it up and push it inside

Thanks for reply . Now when ever I connect wd hard disk to computer my hd is giving ticking sound then
It stops automatically. But nothing is seen in the laptop .

The hard disk seems to have physically damaged.. if the data is important then you can try salvaging it.by visiting a data recovery expert.

All the best.

Hi Sam,

Unfortunately, if there are clicking noises coming from the drive, there may be a serious mechanical issue with the drive. It is highly possible that the drive’s arm cannot move correctly because of some physical damage caused by the falling. Sadly, if the hard drive cannot operate normally, it will be really difficult to save the data, using some recovery tools. I would directly contact a data recovery company. If you contact Western Digital (http://products.wdc.com/support/kb.ashx?id=jw7NvD ) you can get information about the WD data recovery partners around the world.

Hope this helps
