It isn't, assumed a controller on the mobo is broken and not the drives.
In this case I don't think it is, but it's possible. Anyway, especially
when using SATA connectors without clips, reconnecting the cables
sometimes heels voodoo. I had issues that portend to a weak power
supply, before ordering a new one, I yesterday reconnected the SATA
cables and the voodoo seems to be gone.

Sounds like the best idea to track the cause, but ...

... How about buying a CD-RW ;) instead of becoming a frisbee sportsman?
