    i acciddently dropped my 1TB WD external Harddrive while it was running. I use this drive to play my wii games everything was going fine i was playing epic mickey and all of sudden the game freezes i turn off my wii and unplug the harddrive and plug it back it and i get a clicking noise. Do you think the harddrive is screwed anyway i can fix this?

    If it is clicking it is most likely hosed. It may be possible to salvage some of the data on it, but the drive itself is gone.
