hey i too had the same problem..some of the pcs n laptop could see the harddisk in my computer but somehow my pc coudnt.
so here is the solution(the solution is for windows 7..i hop u have 7..)
go to control panel-hardware and sounds-devices and printer
now here check if your drive is showing.i probably guess it must b showing because you can see the disk in disk management.
so now right click and go to properties. go to hardware.in hardware go to sub-tab properties in lower right end.now go to driver tab and click on uninstall button. (the last one) ok now your external harddisk will be shown as unspecified. ok now remove your hard disk n again connect it and it will automatically install your drivers like when you connect it for the very 1st time..and now you are done.your hard disk will be shown in my computer and you can open it.(atlist mine was shown)

try this and let me know if it worked for you :)
