    well i had this 2nd drive for about a year and it worked fine, theres nothing really important on it but i have all my music on it. So anyways i took it off because im trying to fix a friends computer and when i put if back on it didnt show up so i went to bios and it says secondary drive "off" so i switched that to auto detect but it still wont show up. So next i switched the drive to be the master drive and it shows up than but when i put it back on the slave cble it doesnt work. U guys think maybe the cable is bad or something else?
