Is this your principal drive or is a SATA drive the main one
Sata and IDE drives do not work together unless you fiddle about with BIOS

Detect


First - re-seat the hard disk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot and go into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If it doesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.
Then the hard drive needs to be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer or laptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioning computer/laptop again.

I have just purchased Transcend 500 gb external hard disk. My system is not detecting the drive? Please help me with this. This is irritating me a lit


Try connecting it to a different computer. If still not detected, it is "defective".
Take it back to where you bought it, and exercise the warranty to get it replaced, at no cost to you.

WD 500 GB resized by Norton Ghost Restore to 120 GB and can not get it to original size.


You should partition your new drive first to say 160Gb (you lose a bit after formatting) for 1st partition and the remaining capacity for the 2nd partition. Because your Ghost image is 120Gb it can only restore to a partition of 120Gb, that is why it shows 120Gb on a 500Gb on a single partition.
You may be able to fix this problem without starting again by using Disk Manager (from Control Panel - Admoinistrative Tools) to create a 2nd partition on the hard drive and format this partition.

Hard drive detection


You should not need a driver for it. Assuming you are using XP or Vista, the disk should be supported directly by the OS.
Have a look at external HDD troubleshooting.
