you need to rejumper the HDD to master and recable it to the master end (last) connector on the cable. Sounds like you have it jumpered to Slave but can't really tell--the jumpers are on the back of the HDD by the cabling--should be a sticker on the drive explicating this. Improper jumper/cable settings is all that's wrong--keep fiddling (and don't forget the molex!)
