    Thanks for your help (I learned a few things with your comments). Since nothing works, I think my drive is faulty. So it will be backup, new drive and restore.

I need to know the jumper setting for my hard drive to set it to a slave

Here is the jumper settings for Samsung hard drives. Assuming that your hard drive is bigger than 32GB you have to use the "General Pin Setting"
Note that after changing the jumper, it's suggested to partition and format your hard disk drive.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.

Installed 2T Hitachi drive with controller as secondary drive. Devices show both working correctly. But XP doesn't recognize it. How do I get XP to recognize it?

This problem can easily be fixed. It is caused by your HDD not being formatted. Go to Start> Right click on "my computer" and select manage from the box that pops up. In the window that pops up then, click on Storage > Disk management on the left hand side. Then right click on the drive you installed, and click format. You should probably format as NTFS.

Hard disk Promlem

if you can hear the clicking sound then there is nothing a normal person can do. unless you have a spare HDD open it and replce the platter. but it is very risky
if you need the data in it badly, take it to the nearest service centre of samsung. they will recover your data within 1 month. but you will have to pay for every MB they recover.
