Win7 does not recognize my 1TB HDD ?? Help...

Hi Guys

I have problem with Win 7 x64, I just installed the OS on my computer, and I faced one problem right now... My problem is with the HDD...

I have a 1TB WD HDD, and before I installed the Windows 7 X64 on my system I was using Win xp X64( still using it, I have multiple OS's ) and it was running perfect without any problem. but, when I use the Windows 7 it doesn't recognize it, I don't know why!!! It works perfect under Xp....

Note:
- the Os's is installed on different HDD(500 GB), and the 1TB i'm using it only for my data and files(movies, music , ...etc)..

- When I went to the disk management, it said under the 1TB is missing !!!

Thanks alot

Q give us a screen shot of your management/disk management screen, we want to see if the missing drive is missing a letter.
