The arm slaps up against the drive spindle routine! DOA! Once that arm goes kiss the drive bye bye!
If you are hearing a constinuous clicking sound that would be the main indicator of a failed drive needing replacement. Other drives can fail without making a peep while the tick ... tick ...tick ...tick sounds are the one universal indicator for a mechanical failure with no repair options.
Hopefully you won't be losing anything important. If the drive was just bought new return it immediately for a refund or replacement.
