    Help :(

    The volumes don't even show up in disk management.

    I have an external HDD that's in HTFS format and I can view that. It's only the internal SSD/HDD that I can't access.

    2012 MacMini with SSD HDD fusion drive.

    Win8 installed on a partition created using bootcamp.

    One thing I suspect is that when installing win8, the installer wouldn't let me install in the partition created by bootcamp unless I reformatted it using the installer. Could that have been the problem?

    My money is on you forgot to install the drivers.

    What drivers?

    I know the bootcamp control panel downloaded a whole bunch of stuff after initial start up. Hasn't prompted for anything else since.

    Does computer management show the partitions at all?
    I would try to just reinstall the bootcamp drivers.

    When you use bootcamp you have to install all the drivers to a USB (Using the bootcamp application in Mac OS X), then install the drivers off the USB.

    Not at all.

    It's not a problem reading HFS+ drives because it reads perfectly fine from an external HDD I have connected.

    I've already installed those drivers.
