the hdd is probably listed there as unformatted or such. format a ntfs partition . then you should see it popup .
new hdds usually dont come with any partitions on them these days
so that you can install / use them with any OS.
Exactly: dirve comes unallocated if installed as a "slave".
Go to: My Computer>Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Computermanagement>Diskmanagement. You will see the drive listed as unallocated. You simply right click in the pane for that unallocated disk and choose to create a partition and then it will be formated NTFS and show up in My Computer when formatting is complete.
