Check your jumpers are firmly in place.

Thx Powerless, Yes all jumpers and in fact cables are in firm place.I have checked everything.

Is the jumper on master or slave, if you only have one drive it should be master at the back of the drive you need to remove it to find out

I have 1 maxtor HD set to master.
