Did you make sure that the drive is set to master? The enclosure needs to have the drive set to master in order to be recognized. I have swapped CD-RW drives on this kind of enclosure before, but never a HDD. That being said, they are both ide devices so the swap should be do-able and the bandwidth should be adequate for it. Good Luck!! 8)
