Do you have the proper jumper setting for the location on the IDE cable. Master or Cabel Select for the end connector, and Slave for the inner connector.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Yeah tried em all and it doesnt work...its wierd though because it worked perfect before on the other computer...i have a feeling it has something to do with the fact that its an IDE but it still should work on slave you would think..im gunna try putting it in the second ide plug in on the mobo and find out what happens
