At this point, If I were in this situation I'd take the drives over to another working computer and try installing them there and see if they show up with my data. If they are blank there too then the solution may be in the realm of finding some disk/partition rescue software and trying to get the data restored...

But definately don't repartition or reformat the drives if there is anything you want off of them.
