I'm not sure if what I want to do can be done. I have 2 internal drives, the Main HD which holds the OS and all programs, and then a drive called Pix that just holds files.

I want to backup both the Main HD and the files on the 2nd drive to an external drive. Do I have to partition the external drive to do that? I tried making a copy script that backed up Main HD and then added /Volume/Pix, and it appeared to back it up, but when I looked on the external drive I couldn't find the Pix files.

Thanks for your help!

Yes, you need to partition the drive into two volumes, in this case, and back up each source volume to its corresponding destination.
