I'm trying to install a Western Digital Serial ATA Hard Drive into the external hard drive enclosure. There are no instructions as to what cables need to be attached and to where

USB external hard drive cases are supplied with SATA and power connectors attached to the circuit board in the case. If you canot connect it to the SATA hard drive then you may have the wrong drive case, your case may be a IDE or SCSI type.

I have a Galaxy Metal Gear Box. It will house two hard drives. It refuses to post the second drive. I just put a brand new one in it. Same result. Rocky

If both drives are SATA (not "parallel-ATA") drives, then "swap" the physical location of the two drives, to see if only the "top" (or the "bottom") drive is NEVER detected. Or, if the "detected" drive moves after the drives are swapped, then the non-detected drive has a problem. In that case, remove the "good" drive, to see if the "bad" drive can be detected when it is the only active drive.

Hard drive will not spin.

I have the same problem with the same enclosure. I found out it is the power supply problem. It worked the first time out of the box. But when the black 12V/5V power supply box heats up, if I turn it off, and on again, my hard drive won't spin up. It had buzz sounds and tried to spin. I think they use a crappy power supply that can't supply enough current during drive spin up when temperature goes up.

My solution is to unplug the whole unit from the wall when you don't use it. That give the crappy power supply time to cool down, so next time when you turn it on, it'll start from cold. This solutoin worked for my 300G Seagate drive. For my smaller WD drive, it doesn't require cold start. I guess it makes sense, as bigger drives require more current to spin up.

Difference between ata and sata hard disks

ATA, or (PATA) hard drives use the older "seatbelt" 40 or 80 pin ribbon interface cable, whereas SATA is fairly new using the small, thin interface cable found in most computers manafactured in the last 12-18 months, hope it helps
