Specs: Windows XP
Recently I noticed that my 2nd HD was not appearing on my CPU. I checked the BIOS and it was not there as well. Later that evenning my wife needed to use the DVD/CD rom (I have 2) and it wouldn't read the information on the disk. So I used my 2nd DVD/CD rom drive and noticed that it was missing form my BIOS and computer management also. HELP !!!!!!!!

Have you tried opening your computer up and verifying that all power cable, IDE or sata cables are still plugged in?

When you have it open up, check to see if you can hear your second hard drive spin.

As for your DVD/CD rom does it power up? Does the tray eject when you ask it to eject?
