OK I need help and ASAP.

I have Server std 2003 with a High Point rocket raid 1640
while back a HDD failed and we lost the lot. I tried to rebuild with
the faulty drive and it wouldn't. Got new drive, make and size not
model, it did rebuild then chkdsk and removed the lot.

OK so got new drive and spare, everything good NO. Today old drive went
down, spare kicked in, second drive went down.

What to do?
Get new drives and try rebuild although I have little hope?
Is this a shit card?
How to test the drives against the card to determine fault?
