are you running this second drive thru a RAID chip? if so you will have to install drivers for the RAID chip first.

otherwise, go into device manager in windows and see if its dectected there - might need to be formatted before windows will recognise it as a 2nd drive.

You first have to put a partition on it, then format it.
