yep reconnect. it appears that your mobo doesnt detect your drives. if they came with drivers, reinstall them.

I've had harddrives do similar things. Try disconnecting it, cut the comp on then back off, then reconnect them. Never quite figured out why but I've had to do that to my Western Digital Harddirve quite a few times, usally if my computer does something like shuts down in the middle of some process...
