Hooray, another Formac enclosure owner! I agree with Kevriano - I think your optical drive has 'expired'. The clicking noise indicates hardware failure.

I had an experience similar to yours last year, except that the drive would not accept dvd's. The problem was an old Pioneer 105R inside the Formac (Devideon - Firewire), which I replaced with a Pioneer 112D. I can happily recommend the upgrade, but I suggest you go further and put in a Pioneer 115D or 116D (is there currently a 117D?). Optical drives are cheap, and it's a simple enough matter to install one in the enclosure.
