Either your disk-drive:

  • is not receiving electrical power -- check for a loose/broken power-connector into it;
  • has a loose/broken "data" cable -- the motherboard is reporting "no disk-drive is installed";
  • has "dead" electronics -- it is not responding when queried;
  • the motherboard has been configured to "ignore" any device with its data cable connected to the motherboard.

Good luck.
