Cannot access large secondary drives

When I install Windows 2003 Server I cannot access two large secondary drives.  I know with Win 2k and Win XP machines you need to enable large drives thru the registry for anything over 137 GB.  I cannot see them in the BIOS and they appear in My Computer.

Right click My Computer and go to Manage, select Disk Management on the left side.  Do you see your drives?  If so, you may just need to format them and/or assign a drive letter.

I have data on those drives, so I would rather not format it.  They already have a drive letter assigned.

If they have drive letters, what do you mean by "cannot access"?  Do you receive an error message of some sort?
