I think the OP missed the point about the way the cable is attached. The longest end should be to the motherboard/interface.
I wonder if the hdd is on the correct position of the cable via the proper connector.
I also wonder what 'hdparm -I /dev/hdc' shows?
excerpt from 'man hdparm';
-i Display the identification info that was obtained from the drive at boot time, if avail-
able. This is a feature of modern IDE drives, and may not be supported by older devices.
The data returned may or may not be current, depending on activity since booting the sys-
tem. However, the current multiple sector mode count is always shown. For a more
detailed interpretation of the identification info, refer to AT Attachment Interface for
Disk Drives (ANSI ASC X3T9.2 working draft, revision 4a, April 19/93).
-I Request identification info directly from the drive, which is displayed in a new expanded
format with considerably more detail than with the older -i flag.
I know what you mean, but i've tried to include as much info as i could, i checked the cable first of all, then tried with puppy to be sure: do you expect me to believe the cable is not at the right place ?
