It sounds like the drive is not "initialized" in windows. Open control panel > administrative Tools > Computer Management > Look in the left hand pane of the next window and scroll down and select Disk Management. Your "active and Initialized " discs will show up in the top window, all other drives whether active or not will show in the bottom. Look in the bottom window and find the drive you installed. It may not even give it a drive letter yet but it will list is as disc 2, or disc 5, etc. Where it says disc *, right click in that little box and see if it gives you the option to "Initialize" disc. If it does, go ahead and choose to initialize the disc. If it gives you the choice to make the drive bootable, that is up to you to decide, if you are just using the disc as a backup or file storage, then it does not need to be bootable. Once the disc is initialized, it can be formatted and partitioned anyway you see fit. Get back to me if this doesn't apply to you and we'll look into it further.
