  1. Firstly, make sure it is plugged in and has power. :P Secondly, does the BIOS recognize the drive and its name? Thirdly, has the drive been recognizable by Windows before?
  2. Best answer
    Is the drive formatted?, go into disk management (click your start button and search "disk management") and it should be somewhere there as unallocated space possibly, right click it and format. This tends to be the issue with new drives not showing up in Windows.
