I'm having nearly the exact same issue. My logic board suffered some unfortunate liquid damage earlier this year (MBP wouldn't even boot). I found a guy on ebay who does logicboard repairs rather than replacements (saved me hundreds) and my computer worked fine for a couple months. I recently replaced the SuperDrive with a Kingston SSD and everything was working fine for a few weeks.
 
One day when I got home from work I got a kernel panic and my computer refused to boot. I reinstalled SL onto the 320GB HDD that came with the computer via firewire and Target Disk mode (I had converted it to a storage drive) but was unable to write to the SSD. I was able to recover data from the drive using DiskWarrior, but I could not write, erase or repartition the SSD. I tried to repair the SSD using Disk Utility several times, each time with "success" but I could not use the drive. After a day or two, the SSD stopped being recognized by the computer (not showing up in Disk Utility or System Profiler).
 
I removed the SSD from my MBP and put it into my hackintosh where it functioned normally. This obviously rules out drive failure. So I put the SuperDrive back into my MBP to test the SATA connection, and it too fails to be recognized by Disk Utility or System Profiler.
 
Now I am having the exact same issue as you. There is a problem with either my Super Drive cable (flex cable?) or my logic board itself. Since I've already had issues with this logic board (and that was the cause of your problem as well) it seems only reasonable that it's the culprit in my situation as well. Perhaps an important difference is that my computer continues to function normally when booted from the other internal drive regardless of whether the SSD is connected.
 
I think maybe I just melted a solder or something (or with a huge amount of luck, I just need to replace a cable). What are the odds of being able to repair my MBP without a full logic board replacement? It's already out of warranty (which was surely voided when the logic board was repaired the first time anyway).
 
I could probably send my computer back to the guy that fixed it the first time, but that cost several hundred dollars and shipping to Canada ain't cheap. I guess I technically don't NEED the other SATA port, but SSD's large enough to replace both drives are too expensive for my recent college graduaterecent-college-graduate budget. :-(
