You need to mount the drive (partitions) to be able to see them in My Computer.

To do so, follow these steps:

- Rightclick "My computer", Select "manage".
- In the computer management left pane select "disk management". On your lower right pane will appear all the drives and their partitions. On upper right pane you will see mounted and unmounted partitions.
- Find one that you need (unmounted ones don't have drive letter assigned to them) and rightclick it, and select "change drive letter and paths".
- In the next window click "add" and assign a letter to it, and you're done.
