Question about PC Desktops
Is this a new or used HDD? If it is used maybe it is bad. Is LBA enabled in the BIOS? Maybe try the secondary IDE BUS. Also try connecting it to the first connector on the IDE BUS rather than at the end.That is all I can think of right now.

How do you have the jumper set .. Slave, Master or Cable select?
Is there another device on that ide cable (i.e. cdrom, dvdrom etc)
Be sure that it is not conflicting.
Match the jumper settings to your 20GB that you are replacing.
