is it a new hard drive? It might need a low level format before it will pick it up. My friend had that problem a little while ago.

as an afterthought if it is formatted as a Dynamic Disk you will have to import it.

Please tell us your OS, 32 or 64 bit? Motherboard, last time you updated drivers for your chipset, and anything else that might stand out in your set-up. What's the setting in your BIOS, AHCI set-up or IDE?
