You must format the drive (it ships blank without any file system on it). Does the drive show up in the Disk Management console? Right-click Computer, select Manage and to to "Disk Management" in the window that comes up. Look for an un-formatted drive and right-click, then select "new simple volume," follow the wizard to format the drive.
