without more information it's hard to diagnose the problem..

did the suffer any electrical hits, shocks, or other damaging blows??  are they scsi drives, ide drives, or something else??

have you checked that they're setup properly, ie. master and slave?  are the jumpers set correctly?? what are the model numbers of the drives?? their is an online reference for helping to determine jumper settings at url

  http://theref.c3d.rl.af.mil/

did the drives ever work together or is this a new install in a new machine from two old machines?? if the latter, you may need to switch jumpers to setup master and slave..


also, have you tried the drives individually?? one may be stepping on the other and bumping them both out..  is your disk cable good??  have you tried another cable??

without answers to these questions, it's gonna be hard to respond to you..

beyond that, if all else fails, take the drives to your local computer repair location for repair..
