The second HD would only be recognized if installed on SATA 1 with primary on 0. When I did that the CD/ROM was not recognized on either SATA 2 or 3. I put the CD/ROM back on SATA 1 and now the second HD is not recognized. Ideas?

Make sure that the SATA ports are enabled in the BIOS. Dell disables unused ports - by default.
