Make sure the power cable is snug along with the data cable to the mobo, , if that doesn't help try plugging the data cable into a different SATA port, still no joy make sure you have the latest drivers for the SATA controller on the mobo - might also try a different SATA cable

i have tried sata cable interchanging i had three spare i checked each and every one at my frns place all worked also diff ports sata i have tried on my mobo
regarding power cable the light blinks the cd drive come out and goes in so is there a possibility that power cable is causing the problem. ill check if can try plugging properly and changing the cable also.
regarding drivers when i go to device manager and try updating it says up to date i have gigabyte GA-G41M-ES2L

which driver are you saying to disable. i can directly disable the device from device manager. i think this all started with windows seven also i m gona format in some days after that also if there is a problem then i think it the motherboard to be blamed.
