My System Specs


It seems strange that the drives wouldn't show up in the bios unless they were plugged into sata ports on the motherboard that dont work or are not enabled. When you fried the drive on the enclosure, Did you have the drive plugged in the wrong way when you put it into the enclosure? Was the pcb on the drive contacting the sides of the enclosure and shorting?

If u have an old psu (we don't want to risk damaging your good computer) u can plug in the drives to sata power only and power up the psu and see if the drives spin up. Run them for a while and if they are ok, you can power down and retry the drives in your computer. Make sure the sata power and sata data cable are properly connected. If your computer bios doesn't see the drives, then either they are dead or the sata data connection is faulty.
