You'll need to initialize/format the other drive. Right-click on "My Computer" and click on "Manage". From there, you should see "Disk Management" and be able to initialize or format the other drive. The other drive will probably show up as unallocated.

Right-click on the unallocated drive and click on "New Simple Volume," then follow the steps to format the drive.
