Iomega External HDD Diagnostics

I have a 250Gb external Iomega HDD USB2.0 that is making a very loud and grinding sound.  I am looking for a diagnostic utility to run on it and have been unsuccessful in finding one.  I have tried Iomega's website and searched the web with no luck.  

Does anyone know of a diagnostic utility I can run, or if there is a third party utility that will work for diagnosing how bad the problem is?
