    First check if its listed under system control panel, device manager.

    If its not then windows isn't detecting it (also check if its listed in your BIOS when you restart), check if the cables are still connected to it.

    If it is then it may have been hidden, if you have tweakUI installed it allows drives to be hidden. Try opening an MS-DOS prompt and typing with a disk in the drive:
    (or what letter your drive normally uses).
