HDD & CD writer probs.

I have 3 pc's at home and about 18months ago I bought an 80GB HDD to compliment my 20 GB HDD
on one of my pc's. It worked great for about 12 months then all of a sudden it kept disappearing
from windows explorer intermittently. Then the same started happening with my cd writer, it kept
disapperaing intermittently from explorer. I changed cables and the problem continued. Thinking
that maybe my mobo was shot I tried installing the HDD in another pc, it didn't recognise in
explorer either in that machine. I tried installing 2 other HDD's in the second machine one 30GB
to compliment the 20GB already in - didn't recognise. However, the 20GB HDD that I installed in
the 2nd pc was read. It seems that it will only recognise 20 GB hard drives. I thought that
maybe the 80GB HDD could be dead but this wouldn't explain why the cd writer keeps disappearing.
Confused? Yeah, me too!
