is it a new hard drive? It might need a low level format before it will pick it up. My friend had that problem a little while ago.

Please tell us your OS, 32 or 64 bit? Motherboard, last time you updated drivers for your chipset, and anything else that might stand out in your set-up. What's the setting in your BIOS, AHCI set-up or IDE?
