I just had to reinstall Windows XP and when I reloaded
everything, my second hard drive is not being
recognized. It did before. Now the device manager says
it is working properly but it is not showing up in My
Computer. When I look at the device manager, it shows
the "device usage" grayed out. What in the world can I
do?

Use the Storage Manager to partition & format your new disk.

It sounds like the poster was able to see the disk before the reload of XP
so it's not a new disk. What is "Storage Manager"?
