One of the big problems with disc brakes is contamination of the pads. If you touch the rotors with your bare hands, the oil on your skin is enough to contaminate them. When you were installing them, did you touch the rotors or pads? If so they're probably contaminated.
Clean the rotor with isopropyl alcholol. Remove your pads and rub them accross a piece of 220 grit sandpaper layed on a hard surface to remove the first layer of brake pads!
If you do these things, and are still having problems, PM me and I will give you some "other" tricks that are not recommended to the masses!
BTW, I am a "technician". I've worked on bikes professionally for years.
With That, I still have a lot to learn!
