Can you describe the sound better.

Does it happen while you are braking, or is it constant (pulsing as the wheel turns)?

Most of the time when a new brake has a constant grinding noise it is because the caliper is rubbing against the rotor at one spot. The remedy is to reposition the caliper. This can be either a centering issue, or it may be that the adapter isn't quite positioning the caliper correctly (new adapter, or possible shimming it with washers).
