Windows 7: Partition not seen in My Computer after Install

Partition not seen in My Computer after Install

I started with a 250GB Sata HD running XP,and installed Windows 7 on it by booting from the CD.The drive had a first partition C: @ 40GB and a second, New Volume H: @ 200GB.
I installed to the C: partition and noticed the option to install to H: partition,so figured all was good,as C: is where I wanted it-leaving H: for programs,documents,etc.
Well,the install went smoothly,and everything seems to be working fine,with the exception of not seeing New Volume H: in My Computer.It is,however,found in Disk Management.
I now have the following in My Computer
Floppy Disk Drive (A
Local Disk (C
DVD RW Drive (D CD ROM
Is there a way to make H: appear in My Computer so I can access the files?
There currently appears to be no way to open it in Disk Manager.
Sorry about the smileys-no time to look for that user setting
