So, I decide to try the brand new cable that I had tried before with no luck. Before I connected it, I lowered my magnifier light down into the board connector. Lightly went over each line of connectors. Maybe light corrosion? Lightly used a toothbrush to clean connectors, plugged the new cable back in, accept this time, it felt more like a snap then a subtle push. It was connected before, but never really snapped. Put the drive in with the unit on it's side. Put el cap boot disk in, the disk shows up.  I changed the date in terminal, so el cap would go. Just a worn corroded connector? I checked it so many times. Just goes to show, never give up and listen to these guys!! Thanks
