Set it to IDE. Try some other SATA port.

You do have the power lead connected? there was one here the other day that had neglected to connect the power cable.
Failing that and the post by mosox, try a different sata cable, some that are supplied can be faulty. If you don't have spare, disconnect one from your other drive to check.
