I bought a 120GB Hitachi Hard drive from PBMedic and installed it today. My computer doesn't recognize it. I struggled with it all day to no avail. I hope that I didn't damage it somehow while handling it. I don't believe that I damaged the pins that attach to the cable connector, they still appear straight, but I am not sure. I suppose it could have been damaged due to static discharge, but I was careful to ground myself by touching the frame and I never detected any kind of shock so I honestly don't know about that either.
When I boot up the computer, I get a flashing folder and a question mark, followed by the mac symbol, that goes on repeatedly. I have tried booting the computer from the Restore disk, but it does not read the drive as being there. I am at a loss of what to do. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
