Help Needed Tracking Virus

Specs: Windows 7
My PC currently has two hard drives, the second being used mostly to store music, but shortly after turning my computer on, the drive disappears from My Computer, and only re appears once I turn the computer off and on again (Note: just restarting the computer does not fix this).
I am currently using AVG, Ad-Aware and Spybot S&D to try and find the culprit, but to no avail
Has anyone come across this themselves, and if so, what did you use to sort it out?
