Hi there,

Tell us a little more about your computer, OS, external HDD, how it is connected (eSATA, USB) and where you notice it is detected by your computer, by the BIOS, or OS.

Go to Disk Management, and in the lower graphic area, you should see the HDD listed if it is being detected by the OS. IF so, right click on it, and click format. That should get you going.
