Second SATA drive trouble

I've just upgraded to Windows 7. I've got two internal SATA drives and an external drive plugged in. BIOS, Device Manager and the System tab all recognize all three drives in the right places and as hard drives, they're all showing no new drivers to install for them, and everything should be fine... except that I can't access the second (non-boot) SATA drive. Explorer just doesn't show it existing at all, and right-clicking on it in the Drive Manager has the Open and Explore functions greyed out. Obviously it knows it's a hard drive - what's wrong?

Looks like you need to assign a drive letter to it in Disk Management. Right-click the drive labelled as "Asher" in the lower half of the screen and select Change Drive Letter And Path. Now click the Add button and assign a drive letter.
