  1. Is it a new drive? If so, it probably just needs to be partitioned and formatted.

    Connect the drive to the system.

    Start Disk Management: Start -> right-click "Computer" -> select "Manage"

    Click on "Disk Management" in the left pane.

    Scroll down to the bottom of the middle pane to find your new drive and right-click on it to create a volume (partition it) and format it.
  2. Try that. But still invalid
  3. Did you see the drive in Disk Management? What was the description that was shown inside the map of the drive at the bottom of the middle pane?
  4. My experience with Fields Data Recovery was absolutely positive. My case was treated professionally and their expert team is worth a mention.
