    ok but it still looks like that stupid white cable is the culprit... when I disconnect that cable the hard drive(s) come up... ( I used both the old original drive, and the new 2 drive upgrades both with the same outcome...) The cable looks roughed up but I ran a test on the cable and it seems it can pass Voltage... So what's the beef?

    As said, it could be the mainboard shorted.

    I had a similar problem on my DSR704. A new (actually used) power supply I got on eBay fixed the problem (approx. $40).
