Starts lead in and then goes no further

Hi urinalfresh and welcome to CDF.

Have you tried different media?
also what kind of media are you using?
-/+R?

Your drive is sata, and if yes have you checked the controller settings? many drives have problems when they operate in raid mode so you night want to try it in IDE mode.

You can always try some different cables and if that fails, try the drive in another PC.

Have tried using + and - disc of diferant brands…
I’m afraid you talking to a novice here so i have no idea about ide/raid modes,i just replaced the existing drive like for like
sorry

First is drive is IDE or sata?
Second what motherbaord fo you have?
Third have you tried different cables?

drive is ide
Motherboard Name Asus P5GD1-FM (FSC OEM)
and yes i have tried diferant cables
