DVD Drive not Recognized in Bios

So I unplugged the Drive to spot out some problem with windows not installing correctly and now the Drive isn't being show in the Bios or on boot, it has power cause it opens the tray correctly and I tried resetting the bios to defaults.

How do I fix this. And I'm in the process of reinstalling Windows so I'm limited in what things I can do.

Thanks For Reading.

It would seem to be a connection issue. If necessary, try a different connector. A Guy

HD Not recognized in Windows 7 but in BIOS
I recently installed Windows 7 onto my computer and one of the hard drives is not displayed in Windows. It is listed in the boot sequence and in BIOS. Does anyone have an idea as to why it would be in the BIOS but not available through Windows 7? Thanks.
