Lost access to hard drive on home network

Problem:- Two networked computers, each having two (2) HDD's, I have named the computers as Desk1 and Desk2. In Desk2 Windows Explore disk0 is listed but not disk1. In "Computer Management -> Disk Management" disk1 is listed as: Unknown; 639.33GB; Not Initialized: In disk1 properties identity is shown as MC75L060EVVA47-0$ $$$$$$$$$$$ Device Status "This device is working properly" The symbol $ appears to indicate that the drive has become a Special Shared Resource. I can find no trace of the drive being identified in Desk2 (although I my not have found the appropriate location).
My setup is.
Desk1 AMD 2000 disk0 15+15GB; disk1 80GB
Desk2 Pentium 866 disk0 20GB; disk1 60GB(Missing)
Home Network Cat5 cable; NIC's Realtek PCI Fast Ethernet. Router/modem PTI PAC-CE84. Note (which may be quite irrelivant) I can ping Desk1->Desk2 but not Desk2->Desk1. Desk1 has been used as the host to set up router.
How do I get missing disk1 reassigned to Desk2. Your help would be most appreciated
