Most likely the firmware update didn't take.Take the drive out of the enclosure and connect the drive to an IDE cable and see if your BIOS recognizes,if not try the firmware update again this time connected to IDE.

I think this is an IDE drive. It says "fireware" I think he meant firmware, as that is what it is refrenced to in the post.
