What was your method (step bys step) of formatting your HDD?
I would guess that somehow the D: lost its partition else, lst its filing system.
If your method was using FDISK, go back there and make sure that the 2nd HDD infact has a partition or that it is either formatted in FAT32 or NTFS

not if its the unpartitioned hdd, that means there is nothing on it (nothing CAN be stored on it, it doesnt know how to store it yet)
