Check to see if the devices are visible in Device Manager. If they are, uninstall the drivers and scan for new hardware. That's all I got for now. You could try and reboot to see if the hardware detection kicks in.

Look in Disk Management if they've been assigned a letter and what it says about their file system.

If you uninstall a device, it doesn't delete the driver, just that one device. Autodetection should get it back.

OT: CPU load at 100%

Do they have a drive letter? One that isn't taken up by something else (a network share, for instance)?

Right-click on them, click on "Add or remove drive letter" (or similar). Add a drive letter for the drive. If that doesn't work, look at their file system. What does it say there?

Hmm... Then I could only assume the drive's being hidden in My Computer. Fire up Regedit, search for "NoDrives" (value) and delete it wherever it is present. Can you also access the drive by entering its letter in the Run box or by accessing it from a DOS box?

One issue after another. After re-installing chipset driver (advice from Neowin irc) assigning it a drive letter would make them show up in my computer but only as a Hard Drive instead of Removable Storage and not automatically getting a drive letter. More help please lol.
