Oh nooooooooooo.

Charging doesn't try to spin up the drive.

When you can hear the drive clicking it usually means it isn't getting
enough current to spin up the disk. Sounds like a broken contact between
the batteries and the drive at best, or a broken drive at worst. Either way
a good starting point is to pull the drive out and see if you can still
access it directly on your PC using an adaptor.

Good luck.
