- SATA HDD not recognised

in My Computer or Windows Explorer, it is being recognised at boot up. I
have 2 x Samsung SpinPoint HD501LJ 500GB SATAII Hard Drives and a LG SATA2
The motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R Socket 775 8 Channel Audio ATX
Motherboard, OS is XP Pro with SP2.
I have connected the SATA drives to the following mobo connectors:
HDD 1 connected to SATA2 0
HDD 2 connected to SATA2 1
DVD connected to SATA2 2
Windows Explorer & My computer only shows C and D drives (HDD & DVD Drives).
Swapped over the HDD2 & DVD connectors on mobo but made no difference.
This is my first use of SATA drives, I don't want a RAID configuration, only
a Primary HDD, Secondary HDD & DVD drives as I would have with IDE.
Until I can get the pc to recognise the second HDD, I can't format it.
Appreciate any help on this.
