    after the drives show up in device manager, uninstall them, reboot, and plug 'em back in and let windows reinstall the drivers.

    ok, check in disk management if the drives have been assigned a letter.

    they show up in Disk Management but they don't get assigned a drive letter, and if i assign them one it still never shows up in My Computer.
