Hi,

The most common error we see is jumper conflicts and incorrect ribbon cable placement.

When one gets a new drive from the factory, it is set to Cable Select. Then, when you take the old drive to use as a slave, it is set to slave....won't work that way. You need to (if on the ribbon cable with another drive) make sure your master is set with the jumpers to master before you add the second drive. Then, you need to set the slave jumpers to slave. The master always goes on the end of the ribbon cable and the slave in the middle of the ribbon cable.

Hope this helps and if your setup is different, then post back with clarifications.
