hi,

my external LaCie 1 TB USB 2.0 (301304U) which i bought a few weeks ago always makes a short lout click noise when i turn it on.i never really bothered about it but i just read that this could be a sign of an upcoming bad hardware failure.

a friend of mine has the same model and there is no clicking noise when he starts his one.

should i be worried about it? i didnt have any problems with mine yet,but i dont want to risk losing my data.

maybe you guys can help me out on this one,

thanks a lot,

If it is a single click, it is probably not an issue, just the heads seeking for the SA information to init. Repetitive clicks however indicate issues.
