  1. about a week ago my power source died on me so i had to get a new one, yesterday i bought a new one and hooked it up and since then, my 2 disks arn't working. one of them will open/close but it's not there under My Computer to access it, the other one doesn't even open/close or listed under Device Manager :\. If you know how I could fix this please help

    P.S sorry if this is the wrong forum, but i think it's the right one.
