Dynamic Disk unreadable, Windows XP

Shakedb asked
Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I'm using windows XP with 2 hard disk: WD 80GB SATA, and WD160GB.
The 80GB drive is a Basic drive, and the 160GB is a Dynamic disk.

Yesterday, the partitions on the 160GB drive disappeared from "My Computer", and exclamation marks appeared in the Device Manager on the "Storage volumes" section.
Only through Paragon Partition Manager I have access to the data, but it can't solve the problem.

How I can make partitions readable from My computer"?
