Windows 7: Making two HDD's appear as one

Windows 7 64bit
Making two HDD's appear as one

Is there a way to make two hard drives show up as one in the system. I dont want to set up a raid. I have two externals that i use to store movies and music on. I would like to make the system see them as one. The reason for wanting to do this is for streaming purposes, so all movies show up in one list on my xbox.

Thanks in advance for any help.
