IDE or SATA? If it's IDE, it may be a problem with your IDE channel drivers. Update/Reinstall them.

Alternatively, you could have a registry issue. Please see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060 (microsoft.com) for a known issue with Windows XP and follow its directions.

If all else fails, your drive or your IDE/SATA cable is bad. Replace the cable first. Try another port. Make sure the port is enabled in the BIOS. Etc etc etc...
