HDD there but only recognised occassionally

Booting fails because ntldr is missing on Win 2k machine. Booting from Acronis or Ghost cannot find any HDDs to image. Booting from Win 2K disk to repair cannot find a "C" drive. I have just managed to boot normally and am frantically doing a back up (of both my hdds "C" & "D" before I loose them again......whats going on ? Why are my drives coming and going? Anybody got any ideas please? Once these backups are complete I can do a full re install but I am just curious.......Cheers.

Could you have a loose cable from the controller to the HDD?
