Grinding sound comming from Hard Drive

Okay, now I know that this can not be good but what could be causing this? Every once in a while when the computer is running I get this strange grinding sound. It eventually goes away. I assume that it is bad, but how can I fix this. I have checked and the disk drive is secured well.

Any suggestions or similar experiences?

be sure to backup your important data
how to fix it? ummmm.. really nothing you can do

if it fails on you and your unable to access.. and you havent backed up..

with those symptoms.. you can often put it in the freezer for awhile.. and then hook it back up long enough to pull your data off..

on the bright side.. harddrive prices are dropping fast!

Yup, did that. I guess it is time to get a new disk drive. That sucks too, kinda low on cash-ola but whatever. thanks for the advice guys.
