Hard Drive is Not Recognized?

I recently bought a second hard drive just to store music, videos, and pictures on.
I have it all hooked up but when i click on my computer it wont pop up?
when i go to the control panel and click device manager it will show its there but it still wont show up on my computer?
Any ideas on what to do?

I got a 500GB 7200rpm 6GB/s SataIII Seagate drive
