Win 7 PC won't recognize Win XP HDD

Specs: Windows 7, Core 2 Duo/ 4mb RAM
I just moved 2 working hard drives from an XP setup to a Win 7 setup. The new system won't recognize one hard drive and wants me to format the other. They are both NTFS.
Swapped back to the old system and they worked fine. Back to Win 7 and nuthin :(

Well, after some digging, I was able to find one of the drives. It showed up in Disk Management as a "foreign" disk. A couple of clicks later, I got it.

Thanks for the help...
