    You probably need to partition and format it.

    In windows you can do this with the Disk Management utility
    Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management

    In the Storage module, click Disk Management

    Your drive (if its recognized) will be listed on the right. Here you can partition and format. USE CAUTION! You dont want to format the wrong disk!
