PC isn't detecting storage device - DrexBrightblade - 06-15-2012

After finally getting through my video display issue, everything was in the green until I plugged in one of my storage devices.

This one is detected and has windows/drivers/antivirus installed on it

however, its not detecting this one

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148591

I have the first one connected to the SATA 6Gb/s slot and my disk drive and the other storage drive (one not being detected) connected to the SATA 3Gb/s slots. Disk drive is detected just fine and works fine as well. Undetected storage device is also connected to the power supply.

I noticed there's one other plug in spot on the undetected drive, but I'm not sure if that's just a laptop thing or what. *sigh* It's all a big headache. This is my final hurdle to hop over on this rig and I'll be good to go. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance =)

Try changing the SATA cable.
