it only recognizes the first hard disk to be plugged in to the computer stating that the second one
that was plugged in has no partitions regardless of which hard disk it was.

I think you might be running into an issue with power on your usb ports. Try using a hub with an external power source and see if that helps.

And just so I understand, both hard drives detect with data if they are the only one plugged in. Neither of them work when they are the second drive plugged in.
