    You may have to assign a drive letter to it in disk management.

    My CPU > Manage > Disk Management

    Right CLick on Drive and assign a letter to it.


    Hopefully it's that simple
  2. I'm going to assume that you're talkng about a sata drive.
    Go to Disk Management and format your new drive? After that you should see it in explorer.
