i'm not sure how the relation with drive works, but i do know a bit about Reconnecting.

All your files are offline. If not, and you have relinked wrong, make them offline. (Do make a copy of your project)

You've COPIED the files to another disk, leaving file names and path names identical.

Then, select your clips, choose ReConnect, set a folder to start if you like, searching and press SEARCH.
DO NOT PRESS LOCATE! (that one is only if files are renamed, in that case, and if you have a lot, you are going to pay me, more on that later...)

If all is well, FCP will find a clip. Do have 'Name and Reel' selected. Select 'connect others' (or whatever, i'm behind a PC right now)

This way FCP should be able to locate all clips.
If your media is an identical copy of the first drive, FCP SHOULD NOT complain about non-matching TC or REEL. That can only happen if you try to reconnect to altered media. Warnings should not have to be a problem in some situations, but in your case, it's BAD.

If you however have changed a lot of stuff, try my FcpReconnect app:

But in your case, if my assumptions are right, you should be able to fix it without this.
