Im pretty sure its your bios, hard drives does not have a speaker...unless maybe you somehow managed to plug the HD LED to speaker connection on the mobo...just kidding.
Im guessing by wont mount you mean boot, you can try to use a usb caddy but if your HDD spins but doesnt come up on the system when you plug it in internally the chances are the data port of the SATA connector maybe damaged, which means even if you do use a caddy it probably wont work.
Try resetting the bios according to your motherboards manual (usually by disconnecting the main power connector, remove the CMOS battery and/or shorting two pins that are aound the battery) and try your HDD again.
