  1. Try this
    Control panel/administrative tools/computer management/disk management

    Can you see it in there (with no letter assigned or with some other letter)? If yes right click on it and click assign new drive letter and paths and let it assign some new free letter. Make sure you don't select to format it.
  2. If you cant get it to recognize i would try a program called diskdigger to see if you can recover any files from the unrecognized partition.

    Dear mosox..,
    Actually I did all these steps, I can see only C: drive, d drive is just showing but its not represented by any letter D: I tried already what you mentioned, its giving message that need to update disk management console, even I try to make system restore, nothing workout. By the way thank you for your support.
  4. Please give a list of all your drives and all their letters from My Computer/Device manager.

    Then Start/Run type regedit - OK,
    go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\MountedDevices

    Make a list with all the \DosDevices\[letter]:

    Post both lists in here.
