    A new HDD has to be partitioned and formatted before Windows will recognise it...
    Use the CD that shipped with the drive;if you didn't get one then check their website.
    After you have done this then you need to rite clik My Computer go to Manage and it should be able to see it.

    If its in an enclosure, it should be master or CS.

    Plus then do ^ (what he says).
