i have a quantum fireball hard drive (about 7 years old or so) and has been working fine until yesterday when it said "hard drive not installed".
the wires are fine

what could have happened? have i lost all my data?

Its possible it has died or the IDE cable is loose /faulty.

Sap the ide cable with the one to the CD drives (if you have two cables in the PC.
