I was using 2 120GB SSD's in raid 0 and decided to put in a larger SSD and reuse my 120GB drive as a drive for games.

I installed my new drive and things are running fine.

My problem is I cannot get anything to recognize my old 120GB drive.

I have an Asus P8P67 Deluxe Motherboard.  My new ssd is a Samsung 840 with the Magician software installed.

My older drive is an OCZ Vertex 2.

 

I can't even get it to recognize using a sata to usb connector. 

 

Does anybody have an idea what is going on and how I can have something recognize the drive?

Are you saying that...when connected directly to motherboard...the drive is not reflected in the BIOS?

 

If you had two drives in a RAID, why no mention of the second drive?

I had two drives in Raid 0 and bought a 3rd larger drive.  Now the third drive is my OS drive.

I want to reuse my 2 older drives that were in the raid.

I plan to use one as a game drive in this computer and the other as an OS drive in a computer for my daughter.

I cannot see either of my older drives when connected (one at a time).

I cannot see them in the bios, I cannot see them when connected by a sata/usb adapter, I cannot see them in drive management in windows.

I've tried both of the old drives and I've tried them in a slot that works when I plug in a hdd.

The drives were working fine (as my raid OS drive) before I switched them.

I'm not sure what happened but it is working now.

I decided to check the uefi again and see if I I could find some settings that didn't look good.

I restarted the computer, it took a long time to shut down and I ended up with a blue screen.

I got into the bios and it was there.

I had to intialize and reformat but now I have a game drive.  

Hurray!  I hope it keeps working  lol!
