That was going to be my post....almost word for word.
I've had that same problem way too many times already.
SATA data cables do not lock onto the drives. They just push on and fall off!
I've taken to securing all my data cables to my SATA drives with a strip of HOT GLUE
. End of problem.
The data cables, for some weird reason, DO stay on at the motherboard end much better.
The little sockets on the mobo seem to hang onto the cables, pretty well.
But, if I were building a PC to ship across the country, I'd HOT GLUE the cable to the motherboard too.
