With the power cord disconnected from the computer, re-check the power and data cables to the HDDs to make sure they are firmly seated, also make sure the data cables are properly seated on the motherboard.

Hi Treefrogo7, When I power up funnily enough four drives are showing, but when I go to system information or computer it just shows the three drives as on the attachment, very strange any suggestions?? All the cables and connections seem fine
Many thanks. Shibumi

Hi Treefrogo7, started again pulled all the cables and plugs out and re-inserted them and Bingo the drive is now showing I must have been too cautious the first time round thanks for your help and input.
