Have you checked if the necessary cables are plugged in?

You may need to add a jumper to the pins on the back-end of the drive to take it from 3.0Gb/s to 1.5Gb/s. Boards that where originally IDE have a 1.5 Gb/s limitation. There should be a diagram on the top of the drive that shows where to place the jumper cap.
