9600 won't take HD's

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Why won't my 9600 take my 9 GB 7200Rpm 80 pin Hard drive. I have a 80 to 50 pin adapter on it, but whenever i turn it on it spins up alittle then everything just dies. It's got a 390W power supply in it. When I hook the drive to my 7100 it turns on just fine.... Please help!

    As the 80-to-50 pin adaptor works on the 7100, my only guess would be that it might have something to do with SCSI termination on the 9600 mobo. But that statement comes from someone (me) who has never worked with a 9600.
