I did a default NTFS format and that failed within 20min. so I tried a 512 NTFS format and that failed after about 3 hours.. not the drive is completely unresponsive and makes my primary 15GB Maxtor fail when I try to boot with both plugged in.. I've tried all the Maxtor utils I could get my hands on and even tried adding it in with the 1024, 16, 63 settings just to see if it would let me format/partition from dos or even be detected..
I've tried every jumper setting starting with the one's that should work and on, primary/slave cable select and manual, the 80 pin cables in the right and wrong way.. Need help.
