I have a second WD hard drive that is not being detected by the BIOS and is throwing the error "ata1.01: failed to IDENTIFY (INIT_DEV_PARAMS failed, err_mask=0x80)"

Some people say it's a bad drive but this has happened before and numerous powering on/off attempts got it going.  Most posts about this issue ended up saying it was just a bad SATA port (or possibly controller), so I'll try swapping cables and ports and see if there is a difference.
