open a search box, type Computer Management or at least enough for the computer management option to appear. Select it to go to the computer management screen, and on the left side of the screen select Disk Management.

 

Do you see your drive there?

It looks like it needs formatting. Have you ever used this drive before?

So if Formatting is the solution I will format it.

wait. Formatting will erase everything on the drive. you might want to check the drive and make sure it is working properly. there also might be data recovery software you might want to try

download gsmart http://sourceforge.net/projects/gsmartcontrol/files/0.8.7/gsmartcontrol-0.8.7-win32.zip/download ,unzip it and run it. If gsmart sees the drive, have it test it. Take a screenshot of the results and post it

 

edit: what I mean is click on the attribute tab of the gsmart output, and post a screenshot of that.

It doesn't let me test the unknown drives.

I didn't expect that. In Disk Management dialogue, try right clicking on the "unknown drive", and see if it lets you open a Properties dialogue. If so, try to check the disk for errors.

This is a link to instructions to use Recuva, a free data recovery tool. http://ask-leo.com/recuva_a_free_easy_to_use_undelete_and_file_recover_tool.html

 

If any one else has a better program to recommend, feel free. All I know is that the one time I had a disk go RAW, I couldn't recover anything.

try right clicking on the drive further to the right, and see if the properties tab gives you an option Tools --> Error checking
