if you right click on the drives in disk management what options does windows give you? i think you can allocate a drive without formating it

have you checked the bios for the drives in there?

No hard drives show up:

Make sure both of the drives aren't set for the same setting (master or slave).
Verify the drive is enabled in system BIOS. If not, select the auto-detect option.

what are the size of the drives are they the size as windows is showing?

i would try and boot into a linux live distro like ubuntu to see if there is any data on the drives

http://www.ubuntu.com/desktop/get-ubuntu/download

you dont have to install it you boot it LIVE you download the iso image burn it to a cd/dvd or thumb drive using Active@ ISO Burner 2.1 (Freeware) http://www.ntfs.com/iso_burner_free.htm

the website of ubuntu explains it very well
