This link should come as quite the resource for any nerd who has wonder WTF that noise is coming from their harddrive and why it might not be working anymore.
Canadian data recovery company, Data Cent have a list of nemerous failing harddrives, a sound bite and what is causing the failure.
I for one have heard far too many of those noises in my time and can now finally know if its me or if the drive is actually failing.... YAY!

I run a post production company specialising mainly in TV & Commercials. I also do graphic and motion design when it's there to be done. I've used Windows my whole life, but am now run Macs exclusively in our office and at home. Few issues. It just works.

My current setup is a Early 2008 17" Macbook Pro (C2D 2.5Ghz, 4gb, 320Gb, UWXGA Screen).
