You will also need to check the first hd (drive C) as it may be set to master with no slave present. It should be master with slave present.

So it was put at cable, and I changed it to slave. My new hard drive is empty, but it's still not showing up.

Okay, so I looked at the back, and theres 3 slots, 1 for the ribbon, then [:::::] like that, it has five columns, not four and then the power slot. All I know is that the Ribbon says slave on it and is plugged into the new hard drive. When I took the drive out though, it wqas really hot like it was working. I'm so confused.
The ribbon cable position only applies if the disk is set to "cable select", otherwise it is what the disk is configured to be. If there is another master, then you will have issues and not be able to see the second disk. You need to make sure that it is configured to be a slave or the master, depending on what else is on the channel.
Define "hot". Normal hot or overly hot?
