You have to make sure first, what is your HDD type? is it IDE or SATA (Serial ATA).

You should plug the data cable, to your hard disk. Remember, there's no way to plug your SATA cable to IDE HardDisk because the connector are not the same (I don't know if there's a converter between it).
So, make sure it first. If it IDE, find IDE data Cable, and make sure it plugged to your MainBoard and Hard Disk. Do the same procedure if it is SATA Hard Disk, only this time you should connect the SATA cable from your mainboard to your SATA Hard Disk.
