HDD problem

I was reformatting the hard dr (Wxp) when told to retry half way through it (can't recall the error msge if there was one). When I tried again it wouldn't recognise the drive? All I get is 'searching for IDE' which it doesn't find. Checked the connection's they are ok, and changed the ribbon, to no avail. Any ideas? its a 60G drive I don't want to lose.

Thanks
