    Right i recently bought two new hard drives - A maxtor 80 gig diamondmax plus6 ATA/133 HD
    and
    Seagate 40 gig Barracuda 7200.7

    I have tried to install the seagate drive but it keeps clicking which i know means the drive is dead basically

    The other one is strange i loaded into my machine set it to master and took out my other hard drive
    I can run the xp set up disk till it comes to the screen saying press enter to install windows xp
    But when i look at the disc in the bottom panel it says cannot read from disk
    I also tried it in a friends computer same thing happends and also tried on an external usb 2.0 case which will load the drivers for the hard drive to be used on usb but i cant access the drive??
    Im going out of my mind cause the thats two hard drives i have bought that dont seem to work.
