Okay. It's now been over 12 hours and the odd part is that my SSD is still there. It's got contact, I can access it and my HDD has not crashed yet. No BSODs. Nothing.

Which makes me even more clueless? When I had my SSD plugged in to the SSD cables, I couldn't access it, and those cables are now plugged into my HDD which I can clearly access?

What's next?

Wait, I'm a little confused. Is your cabling currently setup as it was originally, or do you now have the SSD and HDD swapped?

What happens if you now swap them back now?

I'll report back tomorrow unless something happens :3

UPDATE:

Before I switched the cables back I took a look at my computer and noticed that the SSD is now gone, again.

(SSD Cables connected to HDD and vice versa still). This sort of eliminates the need to switch the cables back. It also confirms that the cables work :|

Yes, it sounds like your SSD is having some problems being recognized by the system. Try clearing your CMOS. How To Clear CMOS (Reset BIOS) is good reading for clearing the CMOS. The following steps will clear the CMOS and reset BIOS software connections to hardware.
Note: If you are using a RAID controller, this will reset the RAID and you will lose your data. Backup all important files and make a system image before proceeding with this step if you have multiple hard drives in a RAID configuration. .
  1. Go into your BIOS and load default settings to clear the CMOS memory.
  2. Save Settings and exit the BIOS.
  3. Shut down and turn off the computer.
  4. Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
  5. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
  6. (If it is a laptop, plug the battery back into the laptop and then) Plug the computer back into the wall.
  7. Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware, and post back your results.
If you are unsure whether you are running a RAID configuration, do the following steps.
  1. Click Start Menu
  2. Right Click My Computer/Computer
  3. Click Manage
  4. Click Device Manager from the list on the left
  5. Expand Disk Drives and check for RAID manufacturers (use Google or ask us by typing in manufacturers listed in your Disk Drives list)

Alternatively:
  1. Login as an adminstrative user.
  2. Click Start Menu
  3. Click Control Panel
  4. Click Hardware and Sound
  5. Click Device Manager (the last link under Devices and Printers)
  6. Expand Disk Drives and check for RAID manufacturers (use Google or ask us by typing in manufacturers listed in your Disk Drives list)
