Make sure that power and signal cables are connected correctly. Try a different set of cables since you may have a bad cable.
Important: if the drive has never been initialized, partitioned, and formatted, it will not show up under 'Computer', go to disk manager and see if it is there as a raw drive. If you find it there, you will need to do the above before it is assigned drive letter(s) and show up along side of your other drives in computer.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
