Going to need a little more info. What operating system are you running. If it is XP have you initialised partitioned and formatted the new drive?

If your first hdd is a 14 gb then it is probably slower than the 160 gig and if you were up to it I would reccommend reinstalling windows using the 160 as the main drive.

Does the drive show up in Disk Management??

Start>Run>(type) diskmgmt.msc > OK

If the drive shows you will need to format it. Right Click the drive>Format>Choose your file system of choice.

Note:This will erase all data on the disk.
