Have you checked in Disk Management to see if it has been ititialized and/or assigned a drive letter? Sometimes when you add a used drive that has already been assisned a drive letter it conflicts with another drive with the same letter.
All you need to do is hit the Start button and type in Disk Management and hit enter. Your new drive should show up so you can see if it has a drive letter or needs initializing.
Hope this helps...

I went to Control Panel>Admin tools>computer management>Disk Management and there it was and Windows said it was not initialized and I could initialize it with a new drive letter and then format the drive. yahoo!!!
Thanks COMPNOVO for your response, I was doing it as you suggested. Some times I find the answer just by poking around until I stumble across it.
