Go into your control panel, then computer management, and disk management. You should see it in there. You'll need to enable it and format it if you haven't already...This IS a second disk, right?

Edit: Control panel, Administrative tools, then comp mgmt, then disk mgmt...

Yep, you are a victim of "disk manufacturer gigabytes. Real gigabytes are 1,073,741,824 and disk manufacturers use 1,000,000,000, do the math. ;)
