If you mean it shows up in Safely Remove Hardware, that's normal, have no idea why. If it's something else, let us know

Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Storage, Disk Management and see if it's there and has a drive letter assigned. If it's recognized, format it. If not recognized, go into the BIOS and make sure that it is set up to see the SATA drive.
