Can't access 2nd partition after installing windows 7 on first partition

Hello,
Drive is not accessible in windows 7. I istalled W7 on Drive C and Drive D is visible but not accessible. Both C and D are partitions on the same HD. I had Windows XP on drive C before and formated it and installed W7 on it. I have a lot of material saved on Drive D and cannot afford to lose them. What can i do to let windows 7 access drive D?

    It might be a permissions problem, where the root of the filesystem on D: only has identities from the old (and gone) Windows XP installation. What happens if you just click on D:?

    What does it look like if you right click D: and choose Security?
