Does the noise occur when the drive is idle or when only in use? Can you describe the noise a little more as well?

no actually it is not supposed to, but many hard disk manufacturers quality control isn't very good, as long as it works they let it slip past inspection. some western digital have this noise problem too. you are just unlucky, most of them do not make much noise.
