Thanks for your responce. I purchased a ATA to SATA converter. The drive seems to work as a secondary HD just fine. I think your probably right. This old Dell may not be able to support this much HD. I know in order to make some HD's work you have to make changes in the BIOS. It's some thing to do with cylinders or heads. Been a long time since I've messed with changing one. Again, thankyou for your time.
