You will have to format the drive before you can see it.

Go to My Computer - Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk management.

Right click on the new rive and click on Format. BE VERY SURE THAT IT IS THE NEW DRIVE YOU CLICK ON, OR YOU WILL LOSE DATA.

Once the rive has been formatted, it will be given a dive letter and appear in My Computer.
