What kind of drive is it? Before you do anything, try switching the sata cables. For some reason the WD secure cable doesnt work well with some motherboards. I hope this was of some help.

Is the drive getting power? Do you hear it spinning up? I've got that board, and it recognized my drive right away.
If you have one of those multi-flashcard/USB port adapters that fits in a drive bay, disconnect it until your OS is installed. Otherwise, your mobo may put all the flashcard slots at earlier drive letters. Mine wanted to use drive I: for my Maxtor at first for that reason. I took the device out, and had no problems.
