you may have not properly set the jumpers on your new installed hard drive.
usually a computer will have 2 eide drive controllers where you would connect a ribbon cable. a ribbon cable has a middle connector and end connector and obviously another end connector that connects to the motherboard) now you can connect upto to devices to that ribbon cable. most computers will have one device connected to the end connector (the hard drive) and no devices connected to the middle connector or sometimes they may have 2 device on the same cable: the hard drive on the end and a cd/dvd drive on the middle. others computers may have one ribbon cable for each device as computers usually come with 2 drive controllers (so you can connect 2 cables which means a total of upto 4 eide devices)
now, when you connect devices on 1 ribbon cable, the end device is the master device, the one the middle is the slave. to make a device a master or a slave you need to set a jumper. the jumper is usually located in between the ribbon cable connector and the power connector, the legend to know where the jumper goes to make it a slave or a master is usually on the label of the hard drive. you may need to check that label and with some pliers make the proper setting for that jumper.
on a new hd usually the jumper setting will be in master. so if you connected the hard drive on a ribbon cable that already has a master at the end it may not be detected. try to connect that master device on another ribbon cable that has no other devices connected and connect it on the end connector (not the middle one). if you have no other option but to connect it in the middle already having a master device at the end, set the jumper to on the slave position.
while you are at it. make sure you have your power connector and data (ribbon) cable properly seated.
if the caviar hd your are trying to install is an old hd and you know that you have the proper hd configuration and the cables properly seated, it is possible that no detection means hd failure.
Please look on top of your HD and u will see a table that show u the HD jumper setting (Master, Slave or Cable Select). Then look again the rear side of the HD and u will see some pin that locate beside the power input of the HD, that is the jumper pin.
Now set the jumper according to your requirement refer to the jumper setting table just now. To set it just unplug the jumper (look like a U shape contactor covered with plastic) and plug it back according to the requirement. Sometime u may lost the jumper contactor, nevermind just use what ever conductor cable to roll between the two pin and make sure the pin is connected that all.
Turns out this particular drive needs TWO jumpers on it, to set it to CS. I received it used with a single jumper in the Master position, but after checking the Maxtor/Quantum website, it listed the jumper positions and showed the second jumper. As soon as I installed the TWO jumpers in the correct position, the Dimension 3000 booted right up and let me reinstall Windows. I had scoured the internet for many hours looking for a solution, none solved it until I decided to check the manufacturers website. Always start there!- Solved!
Just pull the J50 pin out of the jumper block and PRESTO it'll be a slave the OFF position literally reffers to having the J50 pin off of the hard drive. Just a note though, I highly recommend using a peice of scotch tape to affix the pin to a nearby surface cause there a real pain to find if and when you need em again.
on the back of the drive there should be a black, white or yellow jumper. If you look very carfully at the back of the harddrive where the jumper is, it will tell you which position you need to have the jumper in for slave and which position you need to have it in for master. If it is already in the master position, carefully pull it out then push it back into the correct position to act as slave. Some hardrives simpley have a M for master and a S for slave while other harddrive will actually have the words. I hope this helps.
Translate from portuguese to english... Meu HD também estava com este problema, o que fiz foi limpar o contato que liga a placa lógica do HD ao leitor do disco rígido que estava oxidado. O problema ficou resolvido.
