  1. Does it show up in the lower part of the pane but not the upper part?

    If so, you need to right-click on it, create a volume and format it.
  2. It shows up in the lower part, it is labeled as Disk 1 (unknown). When i right click on it shows only>> initialize>> Offline>> Properties. Thats it, no format or Volume option.
  3. You need to initialize it and it will allow you to partition and format it. Use the option for a basic volume, not a dynamic volume when initializing.
