Seagate 750 GB Not working anymore

Straight to the point, my secondary drive (first one being 2 tb, second being 750gb) has decided to fail on me. I only just noticed it as I went to install Mafia 3 on it, and well, it wasnt there. Just tto make sure I wasn't high, I popped open my PC, and lo-and-behold, there it is. Sitting there in its spot, all warm and stuff. I checked all the cabels, un-wobbled everything I could un-wobble, booted 'er up, and still gone. Well, not entirely. My PC recognizes it being there, but it says it's an unkown Disk drive with 0 storage space.

I found it still in the box, unopened, in my late granddads items he left for me in his will. I'd get another one, but it has sentimental value, yeah?

Is there something im doing wrong? Something I need to press? All the cables are where their supposed to be, and I used the drive previously so I know it functions. Any help? (If you need any further info please ask!)

    Hey there, CanadaPlays.

    Would you please post screenshots of what you see about the HDD in Device Manager and Disk Management? Here's how to open them:

    Try the HDD with a different SATA port and different SATA cables (data and power), to see if the same thing happens. It would be even better if you could give it a go wit ha different computer as well.

    If you don't need to recover data from it, you could download the HDD manufacturer's diagnostic tool and run the tests (if the drive is recognized), to see what's the situation with it.

    Hope that helps. Please let me know how it goes.

    I would, but now it doesn't realize that it's there at all. It doesn't even show up now. I don't think I have many spare cables, but I'll start plugging things in later when im home. Thanks!
