Can you be more specific on your issue? Windows can't find/doesn't recognize it or you can't physically can't find it??

I would verify the cable is connected / secured to the device & motherboard. If it has come loose, the PC won't recognize it. This can hold true if the cable is bad, as well. I would look at those two areas first before looking to replace the drive.

If it's a IDE device then check the jumper setting as well.
