I love SATA HDD's. Hot swappable and plug and play.
No jumpers, no master/slave crap... and a tiny little wire that greatly increases airflow....

I had the same problem with a maxtor 80gig hdd it would not recognize in any of my two systems or several of my friends. the jumbers were set correctly bios was right maybe you got a dead drive. I returned mine and am awaiting a replacement
