Do you have the jumper set to slave and the data cable hooked up with the middle connector. Sometimes the Mb does not like having the HD's set to cable select so i will make them master and slave with the jumpers.

If your main drive is FAT 32 and the second drive is formatted in NTFS your OS will not see anything on the NTFS drive.

Just a couple of ideas to look at.
