First item to check: See that both drives are properly recognized in the BIOS. You will also be able to see which drive is the boot drive (the first one listed), so you can eliminate any doubts there.
Second item: Go to Disk Management and see if both drive are listed there.
FWIW: Windows Explorer/My Computer will not reflect a drive which has a letter assigned to a drive working in the system. If this second drive was an original C: and you have not changed the drive letter, that may be the problem. Since that drive is no longer the boot drive, the drive letter should be able to be changed.
I now start at the end of the alphabet when manually changing drive letters...to avoid such situations as I have described.
Jumper settings are a non-issue, since we are talking SATA drives.

See if this works.
In Disk Management, right-click on the drive and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths. Click Add, click the drive letter you want to use, and then click OK.
