On the HDD led conector, the red cable is + and the white is +. Front IO shoud loock like this:

6|7|8|9|X|
1|2|3|4|5|

Where the X is the empty pin. So the red (+) cable will have to go positoin 1 and the white to 2.

See if led is not dead. You can try exchanging it with the PWR leds. So the PWR led becomes HDD led

hd led + should be on the bottom corner pin, led - the next one in. the led - will have either a white or black cable on the plug, the + usually being red. if it doesnt work, there's a problem with the LED, or the wiring to it. if you know the power LED works, you can plug the Hdd LED into the power led pins to test the LED, and also can plug the power LED into the hdd pins to test the board output.

do you REALLY need a HD light? I never hook mine up because it's obnoxus (not so much on my gamer, but the server case is like a strobe light)

If you don't have it working yet, post a photo of both the motherboard header and the front panel cable ends.

if you say your power led works, try plugging that into your hdd port and see if it comes up and same with the hdd cable into the power led port.
