just bumping this up for you as i dont really know what to suggest other than maybe reseting your bios to defaults and setting the drives in the bios as auto detect.check all your cables are firmly connected and the jumper settings are correct.

I once had the same problem and i found that the only way that cured it fully was to disconnect my floppy drive and rewriter so that it was the only drive connected to the motherboard and set the bios to auto search and it found it. Dunno if this helps at all. By the way, obviously reconnect the other drives afterwards!!!!!
