Well, first the obvious question: What kind of cable do you have it
hooked up with?
Assuming you have the right cable, make sure you have it connected
correctly. I had a problem like this once, and it turned out that I
had put the cable on backwards. I had connected the end of the cable
meant for the motherboard to the device (a disk, iirc), and visa-versa.
I switched the cable around, and then it worked fine. Of course, I
didn't discover this until after a few years, while I was in the
process of replacing that PC!
