IBM x226 - ServeRAID can't set drive to rebuild state

I have an IBM x226 running Windows Server 2003.  A drive became defunct so I replaced the drive with a new one.  It still shows up as defunct and it doesn't seem to be rebuilding.  When I right click on the drive in ServeRAID Manager and select "Rebuild drive", it says "Could not set the drive to rebuild state: controller 1, channel 2, SCSI ID 1.  Result codes: [RC:-5 GSB:0xc ESB:0x76]"

Of course, the program says that once a new drive is inserted, it will automatically start the rebuild.  That does not happen.  When I do a "scan for new or removed ready drives" with the new drive inserted or removed, it detects 0 new ready drives and 0 removed ready drives.  

Why will the drive not rebuild?  Am I missing something obvious here?  Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.  Thank you!

oh, sorry about the misunderstanding.  I purchased a second drive and that didn't work.  However, I just (about 30 minutes ago) put in an IBM drive that I purchased and that one just finished rebuilding.  So I guess IBM has something in the firmware that requires using their disks?  Lame...

UPDATE: when I stick in the old drive, it DOES start rebuilding automatically.  I don't understand why it won't rebuild with the new drive...

The new drive could be bad or not inserted properly. Can you test it on another PC that has no raid controller?

Unfortunately, no.  I don't have another PC with SCSI.

The server is out of warranty.

Not the Server, but the new disk you have added.
