    Can you provide more info please.
    ie
    How have you connected it slave/master is it on its own cable, are the jumpers set correctly, does your mobo support high capacity drives, is your bios upto date, what os are you using and have you run fdisk on it.

    Sorry for all the questions but we need to know more so we can give you an educated answer.

    if it a new HDD, you need to enable it in disk management.
    Right click on my computer, then manage... you should see it under local disk management option...
