I am guessing you have not partitioned the drive yet. If you are using XP do this:

Go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Administrative tools > Computer Management.

Alternatively, right click My computer and select Manage.

Near the bottom on the left is Disk Management. Click on and view your drives on the right.

If you can see your new drive there, right click on it and partition it. Next format it and you should be good to go.

How to slave the hard drive


You must go to BIOS setup and follow the steps.God bless youHowever follow this steps:

Instructions
1
Remove the screws on your computer case and slide the cover off of the machine. Notice the hard drive bays in the front of the machine. The existing hard drive is installed in one of these bays.


2
Use the tweezers to set the jumper pins to "Slave" mode. The jumper pins are white connectors located on the back of the hard drive. Above the jumper pin section on the hard drive is the schema to set the drive to "Slave."




3
Insert the hard drive into the computer case bay underneath the existing drive. Screw in the drive and mount it to the case using the screws included with the hard drive packaging.


4
Connect the hard drive cable from the main hard drive to the secondary slave drive. There are two connectors on the hard drive cable. The very end of it is inserted into the main hard drive. The middle connection is used for the slave drive. Insert this secondary, middle connector into your newly installed drive.


5
Insert one of the power supply cables into the back of the hard drive. This supplies electrical power to the device.


6
Replace the case cover back onto the machine. Ensure you replace the screws to properly fasten it to the computer case.

Your problem has nothing to do with the front panel connections. Maybe it's a cd rom's problem, ATA cable problem or bios settings problem. First of all make sure that your drive is set up correctly as primary or slave at the channel. Some motherboards have problems when the cd rom is master and the hard disk is slave. If the master - slave is correct, check the bios settings and, if the problem exists, avoid AUTO settings; change the proper channel at cd/dvd rom.
In case of a problem post me back your drives configuration too (hard disks and cd/dvd rom).
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Thanks and regards

How to install hitachi cdr-7930 on my dell dimension 4100 window xp home edition it doesent computer fails to boot with it hooked up


If this is a IDE drive...You may have the data cable connected the wrong way around. Do you only have one hard drive installed..? If you have and you are connecting this drive on the same data cable as your hard drive, you need to set the hard drive to "slave present" or "Master" and the dvd drive to "slave" If this is a SATA drive, you do not need to do this and you may have a faulty drive.. On the rear panel of the drives (where the cables plug in) is a jumper pin. Now either marked on the case or even on the drive label are the meaning of these pins. There are usually four sets of two pins laid out vertically. You need to put the little black jumper onto the pins marked "slave" on the dvd drive and "slave present" or "Master" on the hard drive if they are both on the same data cable. you can also set both drives to "cable select" but you then have to use the correct connector on the data cable for each drive. try the slave and master settings first, if you have no luck, message me again..

Slave jumper settings for a 2.5 Hitachi DK23DA-20F hard drive


Most hard drives I've come across have tiny little letters on the PCB next to the jumpers that say MA SL CS which are for master, slave, and cable select. If that doesn't work, go to Hitachi's website and search their support section. There is a diagram of the jumpers for that drive out there somewhere. Good luck!

Did you format it? The PC won't recognize it until it's formatted, which you can do via Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management, then click on Disk Management on the left side. You'll see the drive, and have the option to format it right from there.
That's the first thing to check. Let me know if you've already done that and it's still not being recognized.
