Is this a new drive? If so, go to disk management and initialize the drive.

If you don't know how to do that, you can look at my guide: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/265764-32-guide-insta...

If it's a drive that you have used before, please provide a brief history of the symptoms and changes when it stopped working. My favorite is "It worked before I took it to France and it was X-rayed in airport security."

Have you tried it on a different computer? If it doesn't work on other computers, the enclosure may be bad. You can try removing the drive from the enclosure and hooking it up directly to the motherboard and see if it shows up in disk management properly.
