Cant think houw MBR wouldl sort out a failed piece of hardware.
However carry out the following.
1. take cover of the box
place and on the dodgy drive- can you feel it running?
If yes- simple now ensure the data cable is fully home BOTH ENDS and the power is fully home also.
Also go to the drive makers website and down load any Check/Repair-software they may have and run it.
Then try once more - cables can and do work out one pin out and it dont run.
However if it is dead then dead it is- recover is possible - for the price of a new computer probably.
