  1. do they show in BIOS?

  2. what op system?

  3. Can you see the drives in disk management?

  4. have you initialised and formated the new drive?

If BIOS is not seeing the drives check the data and power cables to the drives.

even try swapping them around with the other drive.

make sure the sata ports/ controller are enabled in BIOS
