If the drive is not showing up there could be a couple of issues with that. The first thing to check is to make sure you just do not need to assign a drive letter to the drive. The links below will help you do this.
How to change your drive letter in Windows Vista and Windows 7
How to change your drive letter in Windows XP
Note if you are asked to intialize the drive and the drive is not new do not do this as you will lose your data on the drive. One of 2 things happened is the master boot record (MBR) got corrupted or the drive is failing. If you have data on the drive I would recommend that you run a recovery program to recover the data.
Another thing to check if you are installing the drive for the first time is to verify in the BIOS that the SATA port that you are trying to us is enabled. There is a chance that it is disabled in the BIOS. Just the other day I was working on an old OEM computer where the secondard SATA port was disabled.
Hope this helps out. Let me know if you have any more problems or questions.

It means that there is no operating system installed on your hard drive and so it will not work until you add one. Buy a windows xp disk or an operating system that you wish to use and put the disk in the cd/dvd rom. Reboot the pc to get it to pick up on the disk in the drive and then follow the prompts to install an operating system.
