HDD only sometimes recognized

I've been having this problem for well over a year and a half.

I have Windows 7 on an SSD and I have a 2 TB HDD for storage.

Sometimes the hard drive is recognized, sometimes it isn't. Sometimes I'll boot into the OS and not see it at all and I'll have to restart multiple times just to see them again.

I've confirmed that it's not a motherboard issue and the system works flawless when just the SSD is plugged in.

What could it be? I'm going crazy...
