You need to partition and format the drive in Disk Management before Windows will assign a drive letter to it.

Start -> right-click "Computer" -> Manage

Click "Disk Management" in the left pane

Scroll to the bottom of the middle pane and find your new drive. Right-click on it to create a volume (partition it) and then format it.
