asus gryphon not recognizing any hard drives

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
hi guys, having issues getting my z87 gryphon to recognize a hard drive

1) it was running bios version 801, so i updated to see if that was the problem. it fixed nothing
2) i also have a dvdrw connected via sata. i swapped the connections to see if that was the issue. it was not

any suggestions?

the drive in question is a samsung 840 500gb ssd, which has been connected via usb to another computer and formatted into a 100gb partition for boot.
i reconnected the drive via usb after having this issue and i had no problems seeing it there.

additional info:
i doubt it is related to this particular drive because I can't get any other of my sata drives to get recognized in bios either.
it shouldn't be the power supply either, because i swapped the power cables connecting the drive and my dvdrw and still only the dvdrw is being recognized

specs:
i5-4670k,
4x4gb samsung green ddr3
zotac gtx 660 ti amp!
seasonic g-550 80+gold

yep

i found one more thing to try, and it miraculously worked. can anyone explain this:

the sata cable i was using was an old one that still works with my old motherboard, but when i switched to a new sata cable with the metal latches, suddenly the drive was recognized in the bios.

i've read numerous discussions and haven't ever seen anything conclusive saying the old sata and new sata spec cables are any different.

they're supposed to be the same...i mean copper is copper...unless for some reason the cable was crooked or loose on the sata port
