Sata hard drive not picked up

Threaded View

I have two hard drives.  One is IDE PATA, the other is SATA.  Both are
bootable, and have booted and worked as data drives in the past.
That is, I could selectively boot (using F8 and choosing which to boot
from) from either, and use other as a data drive (eg I could move
files back and forth).

Now suddenly if I boot from the IDE drive, the SATA drive does not
show in MyComputer.  Yet I can still boot up from either drive.
The BIOS shows both drives everywhere it should AFAIK.

So I am wondering - where should I look for what has gone wrong?
