Have you formatted the drive?

Re: Hard drive not recognised in windows

You will need to add it to the Send To menu yourself, it's not automatically done for you when you connect a new hard drive.

 

To do that on Windows Vista or Windows 7 you can follow the steps in this link here.  Or if you have Windows XP you can follow the steps in this link instead.
