Why my MacBook Pro can't find my HDD in the Superdrive bay?

Why my Macbook Pro can't find my HDD (SATA) in the Superdrive bay (PATA)?

I changed my original HDD by a SSD HDD? Then, I changed my Superdrive (PATA connection) by the original HDD (SATA connection) with a caddy PATA-SATA.

My MacBook Pro can't find my HDD but I can hear it running.

Does anyone know what is the problem?

Can the problem is the PATA-SATA adapter?

Had the same issue, just bought a new internal connector from ifixit. If that doesn't work, both the connector and the replacement HDD go back!
