True. Double check the connections and give it another try. Also, I know you said you saw the drive in CMOS, but double check that the SATA/IDE controller is Enabled. Maybe

And you don't need any jumper pins. I use Western Digital drives all the time. In fact I have 3 in my system now. All without jumper pins.
