    You need to format a new hard disk before it can be mounted!

    Have you checked?
    It is only in recent years that new disks sometimes come pre-formatted.

    Minitool Partition Wizard is a free disk manager. That should work. If that cannot see it then there is a problem with the disk.

    Did you create partition(s) on it?
    What file system is it?
