    That's odd. Another odd thing is the drive letter Q: - I would expect it to have been the next available letter. The only time I've seen the letter Q used for a drive is for Microsoft Click-to-Run applications. If so, 'Denied Access' is the expected result. Your 'Q' may not be the new hard drive after all. What does File Explorer show for 'This PC - Devices and drives'? Mine shows...

    Yes, the Q came with all the drives.
    It used to be E:

    I was trying to put 2 drives into Raid 1 via storage. It kept failing (2nd drive Q: inaccessible).

    I had a D: & E: before that. Now I can't even get one HD to work.

    Maybe this:
    What is the Q drive?

    This means that you have chosen to install an Office 2010 Click-to-Run suite, such as Office Starter 2010, Office Starter To-Go, Office Home & Student, or Office Home & Business.These products are based on Application Virtualization technology. The Q:\ drive is the virtual file system drive where virtualized apps "live" in the file system namespace.The Q:\ drive is not a real drive; it has no space and is not accessible from Windows Explorer or “My Computer”.

    I do have click to run on computer.

    I suspect no HD is showing at all. @ connected now.
    But they are warm, so have power.
    But why?????????

    Ok, I'd tried 3 cables from the motherboard which didn't work. Tried another from eSata port, and used one of the cables, and it work.
    So failure of 3 sockets on MB at same time? Why?

    Thanks for help guys.

    Yes. So I unplugged cable from there and plugged it into HD, and it appeared.
    3 other cables plugged into MB didn't work, but they did 2 days ago.
    So what would make them fail?
