I'm not sure why you are talking about "slave" as SATA drives don't use slave/master. Anyhow, try just connecting power to the drive. Does it spin up? Does it click or make any other weird sounds?

Reseat cables maybe. Be sure to turn off computer and unplug. Then press power button a few times.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
