Sounds like you created a raid-0 with the disks and when you had a fiddle broke the raid.

Use your motherboards raid setup utility to recreate, you may be lucky and get all your stuff back if you tell it not to format it after you create it.

Have you tried swapping the two data leads around?

nope, i did disconnect them but connected them to their ports. do you think i should try to swap them? what i had in mind to do is to take the drives out, connect them via sata-usb addopter to my other computer, and hopefully if the data is still there copy it to the old computer, put the drives back in the new pc and reinstall everything. it all started when i tried to update the drivers for my ati hd5770 in order to get full hd pic on my tv. somehow (read i did it somehow) i deleted drivers but along with those usb drivers were deleted and i got msg hardware problem. hopefully after reinstall everything will be back as it was, cause if not, i have to send back the parts to the shop, wait to get new ones.... etc etc... :fou:  :fou:  :fou:  just trying to be creative, i face my stupidity

thanks for the answer. anyway do you think reinstalling the windows completely even the price of loosing the data would fix the problem?
especially cause it reports hardware problem (i have other post running on motherboard and memory forum connected with this problem)
