Asus RoG G60VX not registering second hard drive

Above is the model and all info.

When I install a second harddrive into my ASUS G Series G60VX-RBBX05 I can't seem to find it in the device manager, disk manager, or My computer when I plug it in. It also doesn't install like other hardware. It doesn't act like its even getting power, but I can feel it spinning on the bottom.

I've tried three drives:

WD Cavalier Black 320gb 7200rpm
WD Cavalier Blue 160gb 5400rpm
Hitachi 160gb 5400rpm

my OS drive is a 320gb 7200rpm Seagate Momentus, I just want the second drives for storage, not RAID or anything, but I wouldn't mind putting it into RAID if it means that I'm getting both drives working.

As a note, all drives are working, I put them into the drive bays of a Gateway P-7805u FX Edition and they registered fine, booting just like that would have, installing and showing up in all places.

Any ideas? I'm stumped, I'm going to try to manually install drivers and hope that it'll show up.

Also, I just restored everything back with the DVDs, and flashed the newest BIOS.

EDIT: The drives show up in BIOS, so I know the drives are registering on the laptop, but why they won't show up within windows is beyond me. I've even booted Linux and they don't show in there.

You have to right click on my computer, go to manage, click on the storage option, and then add the drive in there, it should show up int he list when you go into disk management. then you right click on it and you will have to add it in to windows, I forget what its called. I will post more details for you when I get home.

I got it working now, I had to wipe my windows partition a few times, but its showed up, but I'm not going into a RAID array until I buy a new mount for my second bay.

~Thanks.
