Missing HD after suspension

Briefly: Windows 7 Ultimate 64.
4 hard drives: C;D;E;F (E & F for data only)
After a suspension of my pc, HD E disappears either from Explorer AND from Disk manager.
I have to stop the pc and restart it to see E again.
May you help me?

Could you give us a few more details about your computer? What brand is the hard drive that is giving you trouble? Is it an external USB drive, or in internal SATA/IDE drive?

Try updating your chipset and hard drive controllers. Also, in Disk Management, what happens if you select Rescan Disks from the Action menu?

Thanks for your reply.
HD C & D: SATA 500 gb, Seagate
HD F: SATA 1 Tb, Seagate
HD E: SATA 1 Tb, Western Digital
All ones are internal and wired to main mobo chipset, not to AHCI.
No change after Rescan Disks from Action Menu.
I repeat that the problem about HD E arises only when I awake my pc from suspension.
