The cache error is frightening...
Clicking noises means a drive dead. This happens on a (cold) boot.
If it's the engine, you might have luck placing plates in another identical 
drive, but that needs a clean operation, and it's risky. If was the card, it 
would have been easier.

If you think you can read data:
Go and buy a ATA->SATA at akiba.
Copy data with a retry count of 1:
Retrying more can damage more!
Get Photorec and rebuild what you can
