    I would check the jumpers on the drives. The maxtor drives can be tricky, there are two versions of master, one is master or single, the other is master with slave present. When i had my jumper settings wrong that was the result.

    Make no assumptions, just start from scratch take the drives out look at the jumper assignments and verify everything.
