locked hard drive

I have 2 HD's on C is my operating system and on D is a lot of my files. I have just reinstalled Windows XP as i did not like Windows Vista. Anyway when i had Vista i encrypted the D drive and now for some reason i cannot get into it. It comes up asking me to Format it everytime. I obviously do not want to do this as it will wipe everything off. How can i access it?

Not exactly au fait with this issue but the way i see it is you may have to put Vista back on your C:/ drive to undo the encryption with the prog that created it.
i am asuming it was bitlocker...
