Hard Disk not detect

I have two hard disk in my PC.
First is 500 GB of Western Digital.
Second is Maxtor 80 GB.

Recently, i have installed Windows 7 in my PC.
After the installation finished, i found my second hard disk (Maxtor) was not shown in My Computer. I tried to go to disk management. The hard disk was shown there but when i tried to do right click to explore the disk, unfortunately i can't.

Does anyone want to help me?
