Hi there could some one please help, I have a brand new system ( with the specs in the signature below ) running Windows7 Home premium 64 bit, and the 4 hard drives installed as JBOD, my problem is only three are visible, four drives were visible once but now however one has vanished and only appears intermittently and does'nt show up anywhere in the computer system or when I use software such as Belarc Advisor . Any answers to my problem???
Many Thanks.

Check the cables.
Make sure the data cables are plugged all the way in and tight.
Make sure the power plugs are all the way in and tight.
