You will need 1 ATA 133 ribbon cable, if you don't have a spare. http://images.google.com/images?q=ATA133%20Ribbon%20Cables&hl=en&lr=lang_en&client=firefox&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:unofficial&sa=N&tab=wi
Make sure the Red cable, on the Ribbon cable, is facing the power connector.
Then you will need to make sure the Jumpers on the back, are set properly. http://images.google.com/images?hl=en&lr=lang_en&client=firefox&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aunofficial&q=Drive+Jumpers&btnG=Search
