first ensure the jumpers are correct for slave/master and there are no loose connections.

diagnostic software for your drive (Drive Fitness Test) http://www.hgst.com/support/downloads/

if drive spins up but is not recognized it may be possible to replace the logic board from another exact drive if you can find a used one.

if drive does not spin up you will need professional data recovery to get irreplaceable data.

You mentioned that its "like an alarm goes off" when the drive is connected.
Can you explain that a bit more?
What does it sound like/what happens?

Also, what version of Windows are you running?
In the beginning there was the command line.
