    This may be a "Click of Death" problem. Good site about problem here. I had a similar problem. After using an infected disk the drive itself began to have more and more problems. Eventually when I inserted a disk it would only continue to click. One bad disk can effect the drive which can cause other disks to fail. Mine was out of warranty but Iomega replaced it anyway:grinthumb. Can you test drive in another system or disks in another drive (use caution). There may be info on grc site about your issue, been a while since I looked through his site. Hope this helps.
