Default Where did it go!?!

I unplugged one my my two hdd for various reasons, its named the D: drive. when i started my computer without the second hdd online, my computer apparently renamed the CD drives D:. and when i pluged my hdd back in, it works fine, and when i go to properties it says it is workin properly, but when i use computer managment, its there too, but it has no volume name. although it is "workin properly" it won't let me access it. this second hdd is where all my music and videos are. how can i fix this?

Whats it say about the drive in disk management? Is it just online? What errors are you getting when you try to access it?

Can you see it i explorer? and if so, what happens when you try and open the drive, it must do something. Also, why did you unplug it in the first place? Was there some sort of problem before?

i just tried to use partition magic and i took a screenshot of what it says http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...untitled-1.jpg

it doesn't show up in explorer, and i unplugged it b/c i thought i needed it on another computer, which it turns out i didn't. so it hasn't been used on any other computers
