  1. there might be a latch or lock you need to press
  2. If it's an old-style connector, I have seen them jammed in very tight. You may need to apply more force to disconnect it than you think.

    If it's a SATA drive, some do have a latch as jefe said.
  3. I agree with hang-the-9, some can be very hard to remove.
    Turn the power off at the power point and use a pair of long nose pliers and carefully pry it out, or use a flat screwdriver to gently pry it loose.
    Watch your fingers, as it can come out suddenly and slice the fingers on sharp edges.
