Recently installed second (slave) hard drive now missing

Dell Pentium Dimension XPS 500 Desktop
Original master hard drive 13GB
Installed second hard drive 80GB about 45 days ago.
Only now, the second hard drive is not showing up in "My Computer" and all software installed on that 2nd hard drive is not working as computer is not recognizing that the 2nd drive exists.
I did NOT install any new software today or add any new hardware. I did do a hard shutdown earlier today as the computer was hanging on shutdown and now the 2nd drive is "missing".
How can I get this back, hopefully without losing all the data stored on it. Please HELP!
