Hello!!!
One is a 360GB SSD, the other is a 1TB HD...
I got this and SSD and New cables for him, but when I connected the SSD, he was not recognized na BIOS (ASROCK UEFI)... After that, I decide to try with the cables that conected the old HD and it worked
Then I tried only the SSD with the New cables (the 1TB one was disconnected) and It worked
It seems my BIOS is only recognizong one hard drive evert time, even If the cables and the hds are working
Anyone can help me?

Edit:
Motherboard A320M
HDD 1TB Toshiba
SSD 360GB Goldenfir

maybe ... there is some switch in bios / uefi for SATA speed settings. For example, I / II / III. Maybe one of the drives is not able to work or eg on III and in same time second drive it is not able to run slower than that.

I know this is ... a strange theory.

Try a different sata port you have 6, could be that the M2 slots are enabled and disabling a sata port. There shouldn be settings in Bios if this is nthe case.
