Try to connect it to the other flat cable. Disconnect the CD drive, jumper the failed disk as slave and boot. If not successful, jumper it as cable select. Just leave at as the only device on the secondary cable.
Same deal as before, except now in stead of not recognizing the Primary drive, it's not recognizing the secondary drive. Hitting F2 to enter bios to check dis config and the primary master drive shows ad the good hdd, primary slave drive is off, but the secondary master drive shows as unknown device. My bad hdd is a maxtor, and to set it as a slave the jumper must be pulled completely (it is).
I does boot, but the drive is not recognized in my system.

Note: many hard disks that are considered defectives are not. I never throw a hard disk without trying to format, unless it's too old and small. If the format doesn't help I try to zero all bits. it takes time but I managed to save many disks.

Other then that, if you tried all jumpering options on IDE 2 (slave, cls, master) and all failed, then I don't think there anything we can do.
