You can get a little creative and get a really long USB cable (12' max) or a long Firewire cable, and put the harddrive into a freezer, and let it sit for 10-15min, so it can get cold.

Plug it in and start to transfer the files over. This normally works if you don't have large amounts of files.

Reason it works (sometimes) is because the clicking normally has to do with the harddrive spinning up and getting warm.

This however is a good example of 'Your Mileage May Very' on trying this.
