Unhappy SATA Hard Drive question

Ok so I got a new hard drive Ė 640GB wb and plugged it in there. Itís not coming up in my computer or when Iím booting the computer but when I go into control panel and click under drives itís there and shows no problems. I have tried uninstalling it there and scanning for new hardware where it finds it again but still canít get it 2 show up. Any ideaís people?

right click "computer" > "manage"
storage -> disk management

you may have to mount it...which may entail formatting
