Since you mentioned 2 drives, were they in some sort of RAID configuration? That might explain the access problems.

What r-k said is true. Where they mirrored or raided in a strip. If they where not then hook the drives up one at a time. Make sure you are accessing the drives from an NTFS supported O/S like xp/windows 2k pro and server/w2k3 server.  That way if the drives have NTFS on them you can still read them.

Looking at it from another prospective the drive may be mirrored and the boot drive may have failed.  You would want to try the following. It could save you alot of time and pain
