Why can't you access it now? Won't mount?

Try testdisk maybe.

Please describe your setup.

You have a system with Ubuntu 10.04 installed. It boots fine? Now you add your other disk and the system no longer boots? Or do you replace your existing 10.04 disk and you get the error?

Assuming you added the other disk with 9.10, you need to change the boot order in the BIOS so your system will boot from the disk with 10.04 and not from the 9.10 disk.
