colorado 20gb no power

I moved my 20gb internal drive to a new pc. the drive does not power up at pc boot.

I put it back in the old pc and it powers up at pc boot.

Any insite on why new hardware could cause this.

Hi, Ron.

Were you able to configure it in the new system's BIOS?

Does the new PC have any other disk drive inside? If so, is your disk in the same channel as the other one?

if it is a ide tranvan, check for bent pins on the data cable, otherwise, check with data cable disconnect if the tape itself initialize, (you sould hearsd ome noise usualy)
