Default New Hdd Not Working Properly

Hey all,

So I bought a Samsung 750GB 7200 32mb Cache SATAII HDD, I think the code was HD753LJ, chucked it in my comp, formatted it, worked fine, hoo rah! Put around 300gb of files that I really wanted to keep on it (lol), and was real pleased with my purchase.

Turned off the comp last night, turned on today, BAM! Where is my F: drive... Go to CMOS, ... no drive detected... awesome.

Changed SATA cable, power, used those cables on my main HDD to check if they were problem, nope, they work fine, my HDD however still is dead and not responding in BIOS or windows.

Sweeeeet. So any suggestions?

Some comp specs if that will help:
Vista Ultimate x64
320gb WD HDD (i think it is WD) for main HDD, windows etc
ASUS P5B Mobo

Any clues? I r scared.

Sydz

*update*
asked a mate, he made me check it had power.
yes, it has power, it is spinning, not nearly as warm as my other HDD, but i guess that is cause it isnt being used?

Sounds like a bad HD if the bios does not see it

since you have checked if its getting power, switched the sata cable there is only 2 things that come to mind, 1 your sata port has shorted or 2 your drive is junk.
