Are these drives set up as IDE drives and not scsi?


What filesystems are on the drives formatted with, NTFS, vfat...?


Also, how are the drive(s) jumpered...master primary, primary slave...


If you are trying the drives one by one, make sure that you are using the proper cables for the drive(s)and that they are properly oriented for pin 1, etc and that each drive is jumpered correctly, based on the manufacturer's recommendations.


Mixing drive brands (if you are using more than one of the drives in the system at a time) can be a problem.
