2nd SATA drive randomly dissapears

Hey everyone, so i just returned from a weekend away and everything is going well until a few hours ago when my Vegas 10 stopped working and i looked in Windows Explorer and my 2nd drive (caviar black 1tb) was not even there. I rebooted and it would show up but disappear after a while. Anyone know why this is happening?

Specs:

Primary Drive: Kingston HyperX 120GB SSD
Secondary Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 Terebyte HDD
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3
Video Cards: 2X GTX 570s

    i just replaced the sata cable with a different one and I've been running Vegas for about 30 minutes now and no problems yet besides my Vegas file was corrupted, but that's fixed. I have a corsair HX750 watt, plenty of power
