Have you looked in Disk Management for the hard drive? Go to Start and type in "diskmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Have you looked in Device Manager to make sure that the USB (I presume) device is recognized? Go to Start and type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
Are you sure that the enclosure has enough power to run the drive? If it's not a laptop drive, you'll need an external power source to make it function (and some laptop drives will require this also - generally any that require more than 500 mA of current).
Are you sure that the drive is OK?
Have you switched the jumpers on the drive (if it's an IDE drive, SATA drive jumpers won't need to be moved)?
