You should never have converted to dynamic disks. They should be avoided in nearly all cases.
You need to convert back to basic disks. Back up your data first.
I would use option 4 from the link below.
Convert a Dynamic Disk to a Basic Disk
You can also use Partition Wizard to extend C. You will first have to shrink the D drive and then expand C into the space you saved by shrinking D.
But get rid of the dynamic disks first.

Dynamic disks are only meant to span a partition across multiple HD's.
To convert HD back to Basic non-destructively use free Partition Wizard bootable CD.
However this feature is no longer free after version 4.2, so download v.4.2 here to burn to CD using Windows Image burner: pw422.zip ISO - Windows Live. You need the disk for possible rescue purposes.
Boot PW CD, click on Disk # to highlight HD needing conversion, then from Disk tab select Convert Dynamic to Basic Disk, click OK, Apply step. How to convert dynamic disk to basic disk with Partition Wizard?
