Had the same issue with one of my Passports. Remembered having the same symptoms with the old iPod drives before they went solid-state. Old school lo-tech fixes sometimes just work. Tried utilities, web searches, youtube , different computers and ports. Finally just rapped the POS sharply on an edge against a counter, just like the old iPod. Spun right up with no clicking when I connected it. Copying the data elsewhere since it's likely to occur again. Before the trolls start flaming me... it worked. Argue with that. When you have a dead drive and no other recourse what have you got to lose?
