First, eliminate all the obvious reasons. Check to make sure the connections to the drive are tight, and make sure it's spinning when you apply power. You can touch a screwdriver to the frame of the drive and hold it touching in front of your ear, if the drive's spinning, you will hear it.

Next, boot and see if the BIOS sees the drive during the initialization.

The drive could have simply died, but do these simple checks first.
