    ooook, so that was a pain

    my original HDD is still working but there's no sign of the new one I just installed. I hope there's some silly disk utility function I missed, I don't want to go back in there

    it's my first HDD install ever sooo I was a bit confused on the jumepr settings, but it's on the same ribbon as my regular drive and that one is the master so I put the jumpers on 16 logical head - slave.
    any suggestions other than try again?

    P.S. the screw that holds in drive cage in is awful and it falls on your HD EVERYTIME :p ( I left it off this time.)

    P.P.S. the powercord is REALLY stiff and it really resisted another drive being plugged in so close.

    this is the harddrive

    thanks again for help :\
