Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Did you connect the master to the end of the IDE cable and the slave to the middle connector??

Are both being recognized in BIOS??

Is the IDE setting in BIOS set for "Auto"??

Then, chances are you have the cable connected incorrectly.. Red stripe to Pin1 and red lead on poer connector facing Pin1..
