Hi Abbiellie,

I am sorry for any inconveniency caused by your My Passport drive. I strongly recommend you to connect the drive to another PC and using another USB cable. Search for the drive in Disk Management. Does it appear with a correct file format and a drive letter? Is there is no letter, try to assign one. If the situation is the same even on another PC, try using some data recovery tool. I leave you some suggestions in the link below.

Unfortunately, if the drive is making clicking noises, this may indicate a mechanical failure which is not repairable.

Hope this helps
