|You need to go into Disk Management and format the hard drive either as NTFS or FAT32, depending on if you will be using it with an older OS also, but I don't think you need to worry about that; I would go ahead and do NTFS. So to get there right click on MY COMPUTER and select MANAGE. Click on DISK MANAGEMENT and find your new drive in the list at the top right. Right click it and select format and follow the prompts. Then after that, you'll have to create a partition on it; either the full disk or any given amount of space less than that. To do that you should be able to right click on the drive once it has shown up at the bottom and select CREATE PARTITION. Let us know if that works for you.|
