Default problem with my second hdd

when i built my computer, i installed 2 hdd's, both western digial black editions, one is a 640 gb and the other is a 1TB. When i installed windows, they both showed up when it asked me where i wanted to save windows. Now my computer is up and running, and when i click my computer, only the 640 gb HDD is showing up. I right clicked my computer and went to manage, and it shows up on the bottom section. When i try to format it, i right click it, and then format is not available to click, it is dimmed so you cant click it. Can someone help me out with how to get my second HDD to run correctly?

Go into Disk Management. I believe you have to initialize it before you can format.
