Sorry buddy those hard drives are assembled inside a clean room. there can be no dust whatsoever on those disks. too bad you opened it up.

hard drives "can" be opened and survive the stunt....but i think you have a dead drive there. the clicking is the head slamming itself into the disk....probably not repairable. Sorry.

I have seen drives opened so the casing can be modified for a window, its a cool feature...but very risky!

The drives that survived were put immediately into a sealed area - be it a zip bag or plastic seal tight box.

Some IBM/Hitachi Deskstars get the 'click of death' - which indicates as it says.

But, yes, if you have opened it - that's it I'm afraid. Hope you made a backup ?? ...

The even worse bit is that error 7 may have only been a loose connection or bad cable going to the hard drive. Had it been upgraded?

that made absoultely NO SENSE...you cant just go switching stock xbox hdd's from box to box...of course its still going to error..each oem xbox hdd is locked(eeprom) to the mobo it was shipped w/...if the hdd you have will not work on its origonial motherboard...then your screwed...its possible to put a modchip on that xbox and add a larger hdd etc...or just go online and buy a motherboard+hdd combo...good luck ......after you open a hdd...unless your in a clean room...the hdd is fucked...i wanted to make a hdd window for my 120gig but i dont have acess to such a place
this is what a hdd window looks like
