Make sure the needed cables are connected and Open "Start" and right click "Computer">manage>disk management and see if the drive shows up there.

Assign a drive letter and format.

If you go to the start menu and right click on computer and select manage. In the next Window select disk managment and in the screen that follows you should see the drive and what you have to do is initiate it and format and assign a drive letter.
