Are you trying to ADD the drive to your PC or REPLACE an existing drive?
When you say it is recognised at startup what do you mean? You see the make and model in the POST tests?
What operating system is on your PC?
What operating system is/was on the PC the 'new' drive came from?
When you put the 'new' drive in your PC what did you set the jumpers to? Did you connect it on the same cable as the existing drive or with the CDROM or something else?
