I tried putting the slave onto the primary IDE cable port (the one my master is on) and the BIOS still didn't recognize it. I couldn't boot up windows, but i was able to go into the BIOS, and with the slave as my "master", the only IDE device that showed up was my CD/DVD drive. That's what led me to believe the problem is in the drive itself. I tried cleaning the power contacts with rubbing alcohol and blowing out the IDE port, but neither worked. I'm beginning to think that the drive is just completely dead
Try a different cable?
Try putting each drive on a separate cable (temporarily)?
The fact that the drive doesn't show in the BIOS...seems to indicate a connection/hardware problem, IMO.
