|I will try the hard drives with a different system and see what happens. I haven't got a spare IDE cable though it was working fine before. I guess I could try the CD Rom cable?|
To daveincaps, the Maxtor was given to me, so I would be surprised if it is a bad one too, though it could be. Neither are spinning which is odd. I installed the previous Samsung hard drive and it was auto detected, not manually ID'd.
