See if disabling advanced power management for your WD drive makes a difference...

Open the "Disks" utility .. highlight your WD drive in the left hand column .. click the little 'hamburger' button on the titlebar and select "Drive Settings" .. on the 'APM' tab, set the switch to OFF.

have you tried option number 10 on this website Some laptops: hard disk constantly clicks and spins up and down

edit, it seems you have tried hdparm, sorry I missed that.

Great site for newbies though.

This problem solved! In the end, i did this three settings from to disk manager than harddisk is working like on windows vista or 7. Every ten seconds clicking normally like in working windows , sounds is good . Not seems like that bad *gurk sound.  :P :D :)
I marked to topic. Thanks a lot!

I am happy now... ;)
