Is the power connector firmly seated? Also check you have the IDE cable the right way round, the red stripe should go to pin one.

the power is ok because when i put a cd in the drive the lite comes on and the disk spins, i have the red side of the cable next to the power line. The obvious fault i thoought would be the ribbon cable not firmly seated but i have tried this a couple of times.

Have you checked the ribbon cable at the motherboard end?
