Firestore "clicking"

When I record using Firestore everything seems fine until I've been recording a while. If I'm taping a presentation, the last file created has a consistent clicking sound (about every 1/2 second). Has anyone ever seen (I mean heard) this problem?

Are you able to access the files on the Firestore?

It really sounds like the hard drive is starting to fail.

I would suggest getting the files off as soon as possible.

Clicking sounds and hard drives are bad. Normally it means the hard drive is about to die. Do you hear the sound during filming (coming from the unit not from your head phones). It sounds like the sound is just in your file which would probably be something else but if you can hear the actual FS clicking you will probably need a new hard drive soon.
