Are you sure that the hard drive is properly jumpered to work in all of those systems? What you describe sounds like two drives jumpered as masters. Of course, the drive could have simply died.

Another issue with these drive drawers is high speed DMA sometimes fails to drives like these, I use a similar setup, and I've had problems in the past at ATA-100 and ATA-133 speeds.

Sounds to me like the drive had died. I'd invest in a new drive and install it in the drive drawer...

If the drive is a WD, and the WD diagnostics can't function with the drive, I'd consider that it's pretty likely that the drive is indeed dead!
