Right click on My Computer/manage/disk management and you will see your slave drive there. Is it a new drive without any data on it? if so right click on the right-hand pane of the slave drive, choose partition, select the whole of the drive if that is the way you wish it to be then click on format. It will now show in My Computer and be ready for use.
