The jumper setting on the back of the drive must be set properly.

Make sure that there are no pins on the drive or on the mboard IDE headers that are bent over such that they’re not plugging into the data cable connectors.

Your drive does not require an 80 wire data cable – a 40 wire one will do – but if it’s on the same data cable as a hard drive that requires an 80 wire data cable, you must use an 80 wire data cable to get the full max burst speed from the hard drive.
