you're going to need to be more specific. What have you tried? What are you doing, how are you connecting them?

well often older hdd's and computers are picky and don't like to be on the same channel. if they are on the same channel ensure all cabling is correct and one is set as master and the other slave with the jumpers. often you have to set one as primary master and the other as secondary master (in my experience) to get them to work.
