Is this a new hard drive? (Make, model?)
If you have Windows XP look in Disk Manager:
Control Panel>'Administrative Tools'>'Computer Management'>'Disk Management'
You can format the drive there, then it will appear under 'My Computer'. For more info see:

Soltek QBIC, Pentium 4 3.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 200GB SATA HDD, ATI Radeon 9600XT 256MB, Netgear 54Mb/s WAP, ridiculously expensive Satellite Broadband
Windows XP Home SP2, Trend Micro Internet Security, Firefox, Thunderbird, AdAwareSE, Spybot S&D, SpywareBlaster, A-squared Free, Ewido Security Suite.
