I bought a maxtor STM3250820A IDE 250Gb hard drive to replace my old 80Gb one, problem is my PC refuses to recognise it, I've tried every combination of jumpers, new IDE lead, different power leads, tried it on the first and second connector and nothing... even played around with the bios to try to make it recognise it (restored defaults now)
Can't think of anything else to try, very frustrating as I'm now back on my old hard drive.
Only thing I'm not sure about is that it says PATA and connect using an 80-conductor ATA cable.
Any advice much appreciated.
PS Even tried connecting it while my PC was running, just fr:? oze and 'blue screened'.
