You have power and SATA or IDE cable both connected? Is it SATA or IDE I guess is the first question. Also, does it show up during boot or in the BIOS and just not in Windows?

Check if shown in control panel/administrative tools/computer management/storage/disk management, if shown there allocate and assign drive letter.
