you need to use windows drive tools .

or you need to use windows 7 install cd..boot from it and on your new hard drive make sure there a partion and format it. then windows will be able to give it a drive letter. without a partion and format it wont show up in windows.

It was in a raid 0 and 1 drive died. Raid 0 has no redundancy so all the data that was on that raid is gone. If you want to use that drive again you'll need to remove it from raid then partition and format the drive.
