Sounds DOA, if your motherboard is not detecting it...never a good sign. Is the hard drive making any noise (especailly a high pitched screeching or chirping or whirring sound) when you turn your system on?

Have you tried any of the other Sata ports? Just on the off chance that its a bad port and not a bad hard drive.
Have you tried a different sata cable. The ones that come with Asus boards are not always of the highest of quality :>
Have you tried it in a different system to see if it gets recognized.
Have you tried a different Power supply cable...maybe its just a cable or something REALLY odd like that;>
