If not, then it won't show up in Explorer with a drive letter. You can partition and format the drive using Disk Management as follows: - Start -> Right-click "My Computer", select "Manage" - Click "Disk Management" in the left pane - Find your new drive in the LOWER portion of the right pane and right-click on it to create a new volume (which partitions it) and format it.
