For sure, the cable is not backwards -- stripe towards power connector. The other end must be right because another drive is detected properly by BIOS. I now believe the drive, and everything in this computer was hosed by a power surge -- the motherboard, possibly the CPU, power supply, video card and HD are all bad. I'll RMA it to Western Digital. Its my son's computer and the disk contained mostly his online music collection, which can be replaced over time.
