Dynamic/Foreign hard drive

By melephant ·
Hello. I recently had to reinstall XP. I moved all of my files to my slave drive, and well, would like them back. I initially had to go into BIOS and have it auto detect, and it found it just fine. It is also listed in device manager, but under disk management, it shows up as a "Dynamic/Foreign" disk. There is no option to import it.

From my understanding, after searching the web, it seems to be that XP Home edition will not be able to import this disk. However, XP has been fully updated and should no longer be like this.

I'm not sure why this disk is not compatible, since before I did this reformat, it was formatted to exactly how my XP is (should be?) now. Am I forgetting to do something, or is there any way around this?
