DON'T DO ANYTHING WHILE IT COPIES.
More than likely it will fail, but it is worth a shot. Reading from a dying drive can accelerate its death, but what ya gonna do?

Have you registered the drive with WD? If you have, and its within warranty, at the very least you'll get a replacement.

Not to beat a dead horse, but when you get a new drive, consider getting 2 and using one for backup wink.gif

Or using one that you have for regular backup, etc.

Ahh, the click of death. This has happened to me on both a brand new 1TB Caviar Black and a 500GB WD Passport. I don't know what is going on with drive quality, but I have had more drives fail in the last 6 months than I have ever had. I think it has to do with making things smaller, with larger capacities, for cheaper... the reliability simply isn't there. Spend money on a good 3.5" external drive of no more than 1TB. The smaller the drive is, the more problems it tends to have. mad.gif

Try freezing it. If that fails, some russians actually do this. Smack it really hard on it's top (where the sticker is, not the PCB) on concrete or something. It's worked once for me. I mean really smack the sucker too. Take out all your anger at the new Jersey Shore season on your hard drive as you curb stomp it. lachen.gif

I meant the smaller the drives are physically.

Just read some of the WD Passport reviews on Newegg. They are just not made to last.

I definitely have some old 4GB drives that have been beaten to death and still boot.

I wonder if it has something to do with the size of the tracks/head - density of the data.
