As you used the Spanned Disc Option under 7

You may be able to reconnect to that computer and get your Data off the drive but realistically that is your only chance.

After you get your Data off the Drive when it's connected to the same Windows 7 Computer reformat the drive as a Slave and copy your Data back to it.

If you can not get the data off the Spanned Drive under the same computer with 7 on it without a reload being applied and you really need the data your only option is a Specialist Data Recovery House who can possible recover badly formatted drives.

Once you make spanned disk across two hard drive, that makes the OS see it as one disk. if you seperate the pair, they cannot be read indiviually.
