The disks physically spin up and start working when the computer is booted, but they show up nowhere in any management screen. Help?
I recommend hirens bootcd and use minixp on the cd and use its diskmanagement tool.

If it picks it up upon bootup, fix the drives so they will appear my making their partitions active.
However if they do not show up rightaway or at all I suspect the drives cable maybe going out.
Replace them if thats the case.
