EIDE hard drives connected and show in bios but not in disk manger

Hi, I have two 250gb drives that are connected to my one Eide connection on my Asus P5Q deluxe Mobo. They show in the bios and on startup, but not in my computer or drive manager??? how can I get them to show up so I can format and use them as extra space.
thanks for any help you can provide...

Are the drives formatted NTFS? Do the drives have files on them that you want to keep?

not sure if they are NTFS or fat32... but I dont care about the info on them,, it would be nice to see what on them but not sure what I used them for last, they might have even been a raid 0 set... What are my options, and how can I get windows 7 to see them?

There are others in this forum that are more experienced on this. I only know what I would do -

Try connecting only one drive & see if it is recognized. I guess you know that you will have to assign a drive letter & then format it.

You could also type "hdwwiz" in your search box & run the wizard to see if the drive is picked up.
