Take a look in Disk Management...Start/Run...type diskmgmt.msc and hit Enter.

Post all information reflected for said drive.

I would check Event Viewer for any errors noting Disk0, Disk1, etc.

How To Use Event Viewer - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/

I would also remove connections for all drives other than the boot drive...and see what Disk Management reflects. If C: shows up, then I would add them back one at a time.
