Hard Drive keeps disapparing

I have an 80GB Samsung Master connected to a 160GB Samsung Slave. They are IDE drives.

The Slave is connected with a molex that is also connected to the video card.

I have swapped the it to share the molex with DVD rom or the one with the video card.

Regardless the Hard Drive sometimes just "disappears."

If I replug it back in, restart, the HD appears.

Then it will just disappear after another restart / shutdown.

  1. Solved this issue.

    I reformatted this computer before I sold it a few days ago. I had to fiddle with some settings in Windows and properly create a partition and format the slave again. Wouldn't shown in XP like it does in Windows 7 if you just connect it.
