DVD and HDD not showing up (sometimes)

Finally got my new build up and running (only took 3 motherboards before I got a working one.)

Anyways, first time I booted up it didn't recognize my DVD drive or my second HDD under My Computer. However, whenever I put in the DVDs for my motherboard and GPU drivers, the DVD drive worked fine (still not showing up under My Computer though.)

After I installed those drivers, I turned the computer off. Made sure the connections were good for all 3 of my drives. Booted up and walah, everything was showing up.

Now today...they're missing again! I can't figure it out. Whenever I goto manage under my computer and see if they're showing up there, they're not. Only my C Drive (That has the OS installed on it.)

Any ideas? o_O


Also, I have noticed my computer has issues coming out of sleep mode. It kinda lags a bit before waking up. (like around 20 seconds)

-Edit-
Thinking about the sleep thing, I put my computer to sleep and woke it up (exactly 20 seconds, hah, how good I am) and my drives are back. What the!?! Wonder what kind of nightmares this thing is having.

More about showing sometimes
  1. did you make sure your new mb had the newest bios?? was the hard drive pre installed with an os or a clean install.
    if it had windows then your having issues with the older drivers and windows and the new mb. I would try booting in safe mode and remove all the drivers under windows system then rebooting and installing the newest mb chipset drivers.
    if it still has issue i would back your data up and do a clean install of windows.
