|"Has this drive been partitioned and formatted in Computer Management?"|
New hard drives have no data on them and will not appear as one or more drive letters in Computer or Windows Explorer.
You must go to Control Panel - display as Small Icons or Large Icons (not Category) - Administrative Tools - Computer Management - Disk Management - and make at least one partition on it and format the partition(s).
If you want more than one partition on it (it is WISE to have more than one if it's ever going to be your only drive), then change the size of the first partition to something smaller - 1,024mb/gb.
