Blue screen during write-zero, window cant see HDD

Hi.
From the thread below, I try to check bad sector problem on my secondary hdd.

I am using Window Vista.
Half way through Zero-fill using Western Digital Data Lifeguard Diagnostic, my com suddenly got blue-screen. *from unrelated network card driver problem)

Now, when i look at my computer i cant see the 2nd HDD.
I can still interact with it through Western Digitial Data lifeguard, and computer still detect it when i look for it under device manager.

I already unplug the HDD, shutdown, boot up , shutdown, and plug HDD back on, but i still cant see it in my computer.

What should i do?

    ^ Open up Disk Management (Run>compmgmt.msc. Then go to Disk Management). The chances are since you zero wrote it, the HDD is not formatted. Format it through Disk Manager.
