Hi,

I have WD My Book 2TB, which contains WD20EARX-00PASB0 drive.
Couple of days ago it stops responding and after reboot drive makes noise recorderd on file attached (it's zipped, because uploading MP3's is not allowed unfortunately).
Attachment:
HDD.zip [2.97 MiB]
Downloaded 41 times

Drive never fell, always stood in one place in vertical position.

Is it a mechanical failure (heads?) or maybe some kind of firmware or electronical problem?
Thanks for your help.

Thanks, I forgot to mention that in BIOS (if I connect the drive directly through SATA) it's size is reported as 0.
