Did you unplug the HR20? Turning it off isn't enough.
Steve, yes I did.

Cables seem to be a common problem in threads on external hard drive installations. Some folks were cutting on their cables to make them fit but don't remember just what part of the connector was modified. You'd think a cable that came with a FAP would fit properly since it is designed to be an external SATA drive.
Oh well, just glad that the cable that came with my Antec enclosure worked the first time.
