Hard Drive not showing

I have installed a new Excelstor 160 Gb drive in the primary slave IDE setting on my Asus A7A266E motherboard. The Drive is not displayed on "My Computer" screen. On checking the bios the drive nake is listed under primary slave and Auto is selected. Any ideas anyone?

is it showing under system info and you might like to check under computer management - it just may need reformatting

select start, right click on my computer, select manage-disk management, and your drive should appear here to be formatted.

Thanks Joe R
The drive is showing 153.38 Gb but is unallocated.
there is no drive letter
do I right click and partition?

I've done it thanks for the info.
