  1. Run disk management. If it shows up as raw, it needs initialized first. If it shows up as unallocated space, then it needs formatted. Once the drive is assigned a drive letter it will show up under "my computer".
  2. Note: If you had data on the drive initializing and formatting will make data retrieval difficult.
    If it's a brand new drive then follow Hawkeye22s post.
