    Is this an external or internal drive? Is it a partition?
    Have you looked in Disk Management?

    Please go to control panel, system and security, administrative tools and open computer management. In the left side panel, you will see Disk Management, click on it and check whether the drive is listed at all? If so, it means there is something wrong with partition itself. In that case you can download TestDisk, and try to repair it.

    Download test disk as I suggested above (link for download is also given); unpack the zip file (you can do it on your desktop). Then run the test disk executable located in folder \testdisk-6.11.3\win. Please keep in mind that you will need administrative account to do this.

    Once you a double clicked on the executable test disk win file; it will open in a DOS box, click on Create, then select the partition/hard disk you want to repair.

    Good luck

    Hmm, well try using Partition Wizard, I've used it as well for a while and it seems a reasonable option. Beside, it will be lot easier for you.
