Prohibitory Sign and lost Hard disk

I have a Power Mac G4 800mh/ 1.2 Gigs of Ram with 2 internal 40 G hard drives. One of the hard disks has the OS on it, and the other I have been using to store music that I have been recording and producing.

About the two weeks ago, I turned on my mac and after a long grey screen, up came the prohibitory sign then it eventually booted up. However, my second harddisk with my music did not appear. I tried repairing permissions and resetting the NVRAM but to no avail there is still no hard disk and the prohibitory sign. Even after a clean reinstall, I still have the prohibitory sign and a lost hard disk. The hard disk is not even detected.

Any ideas on how to remedy the problems? Or what could be the problem?
Any help, would be greatly appreciated?

Did the 2nd die? Cable? Unplug and plug in again?
