This is a common problem that occurs with certain models of the MacBook and MBP. The rubber side guides slip out of place which causes the drive not to correctly line up and seat itself to the connector.

Usually, you can replace them and get the drive to line up and connect, however, sometimes when removing and trying to connect the drive without the guides in place, it damages the connector which goes by cable to the logic board. You may to disassemble the machine and replace the cable if it's damaged or bent.

See the instructions at iFixit: The free repair manual. I believe they also sell the cable and guides.
