Does your drive show under Disk Management and has a drive letter assigned (like D: or E: or F: )
Right Click on Computer >> Manage >> Disk Management

First thing: Try connecting this HDD to some other computer. If that doesn't help then try this http://partedmagic.com/doku.php
This is a Linux based OS and can be run from CD (no install required)
Sometimes, HDDs do not appear in Windows but they come up in Linux.
