Is my hard drive dying, or could it be another problem?

I have my main seagate 80gig hard drive, with the OS and other programs on it (2 years old). My slave seagate 200gig hard drive for data (~1.5 years old).

When I start my computer only sometimes will the 200 gig show up in My Computer. The problem hasn't been too bad until about the past 2 weeks. Now I hardly ever see it in my computer, have to constantly restart my comp to get it to start up with it.

Is the hard drive dying, or could it be a power supply issue? When it is in My Computer it works great, but it's so rarely there :\
