I've just upgraded my rig with a 256gb SSD card for the main C:. This is primary used for the OS, apps and my work files.
I previously had 2 HDD's one for OS and the other for backups.

However I've got the SSD working with a new copy of Windows 8 Pro. Only one of my HDD drives is showing. I've copied over the work files but cannot access my other drive. I swapped the sata cable to the other drive and violla, it shows. But the other drive doesnt show.
I've checked the leads and swapped them around, so no fault with the lead itself. Even swapping the DVD writer Sata lead works.
I remember in the good ole' days you had to put a bracket to show if its a master or slave. Is this the case? or could it be a bios setting?
So just to clarify:
· Both HDD's do work
· All the Sata leads work
· Checked Admin tools (drives only showing is the DVD, SSD and one of the HDD)
Its baffled me so far why it isnt showing both HDD's.
