No expert with HDD DAPs, but I would tend to say yes, your disk has issues.

Here is a last ditch effort to try if you are willing [I am NOT recommending that you do this - the decision is yours].

I have in the past with several malfunctioning PC HDD drives taken something like a screwdriver handle and giving the HDD drive casing a sharp, quick rap/tap. This has often caused the "locked" HDD arm/head to loosen and release from its stuck position, which is probably what has happened in your case.

Again, the decision to try this is yours. But I think at this point, unless there are better suggestions and you have tried everything above, you got nothing to lose.

And no, as long as the drive is "ticking" you will not be able to access your files/music.
