One thing to consider though. PATA drives have a little bridge-connector at the back called a "jumper", usually black in colour.
This has to be set to either "Master" or "Slave". The jumper on your new drive should be set to the same configuration as the one you
damaged. If the damaged drive was configured as a "Slave", the replacement new one must be also be configured as a "Slave". Conversely, if the damaged drive had it's jumper set to "Master", the replacement new drive should also be set as "Master".
If both drives on the same data-cable are set as "Slave", or both set as "Master", one of them won't work.

I think you are on the right track there Phillip. Looks to be a jumper problem to me also.
