It doesn't appear where? In BIOS or Windows, or neither?

Check in BIOS that it is detected, and the correct disk size is reported.

What is the disk size - and does your BIOS support the disk size?

Hi, A new drive has to be partitioned and formatted before it can be used. If you are using XP go into administative tools and then comuter management, from there go into disk management and do the biz. Cheers, Bill

If your cable has two connector, you should set your new HD as Cable select, not slave
