This is kind of painful
If yours can’t be detected its either the actual thing is faulty “if it was working before its most likely to be” or your operating system isn’t detecting it anymore.
Assuming you have xp or vista, go to control panel “found on start menu”
Select classic mode on the top left. And then go to “add hardware” this option
Will detect all the stuff in your computer once clicked and scans. If it find you
Missing hardware then install it. Restart and all should be working if it didn’t
Detect it then you’ll need a new drive “replace it”.
But to be 100% sure then you need to remove that hardware and insert it in
Another device and see if it works there.
