My LaCie 1Tb hard drive has died (tried a few types of connections to my Macbook pro and it's making funny sounds, not showing up in Finder as connected). I'd like to wipe it clean before bringing it to Best Buy for recycling. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the drill suggestion - I have one, although I don't know if it will be strong enough to get through the metal casing. Stay tuned!
