I connected a new sata hard drive to my XP machine, Bios sees it but windows doesn't, when I select add hardware, it shows hard drive already installed, it also shows in device manager. How can I format it for use.

Via Disk Management.

Control Panel - Admin Tools - Computer Mgmnt - Disk Mgmnt.

Assuming you can see the drive there - make a partition (as desired) on it - then format.
