    Have you formatted the drive? It will not show up in Windows unless it is formatted as fat32 or ntfs. And if it is brand new it isn't formatted as anything, so you will need to do that. Right click on My computer and choose Manage. Then browse to Disk Management, find the drive and right click on it and choose format.
