Are those new HDDs? If yes you need to format them in order to bee seen in My Computer.

Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Computer Management/Disk Management/

You should be able to see the new HDD in there, right click on it and format NTFS (only if it's a brand new HDD - that will erase everything existing on the HDD).

If the HDDs are not new you can see them in your BIOS at least?
