Disk cannot read...

Sounds like you either damaged the drive when making
the conversion, or you got the pinout wrong when you
made the conversion. Either way you should have it
checked out by a tech. There is a possibility that if
you got the pinout wrong and you attempted to run this
drive, you MAY have damaged the controller.

Hope not.
