External hard drive will not initialize

My maxtor 80gb recently went out in my Cintre X Gear II case...I replaced it with a Seagate 20gb drive...
I enter disk management tool and it goes through the wizard but when i click finish the hard drive does not intialize.
I have got the drive to work one time... but it would not format the drive properly.
I do not know what to do...
