    Not to sound like a jerk, but tried putting the slave disk on, well, slave mode using the jumpers?

    try to set both harddisk to cable select or make one of the harddrive master and the other slave; no other combination like cable select + slave vice versa.

    Also you need to do a format (to NTFS) on the new harddrive before you can use it (I guess you already knew this of course).

    And what do you mean by "it didn't work" after using several power dongles? you mean the new harddrive didn't work or spin after you have plugged in the molex into the harddrive power connector? If this is the case then the harddrive may be DOA.


    Good luck!
