2nd hard drive not showing up

I have a gateway computer running windows 7 ultimate and im trying to add another hard drive but its not showing up anywhere. My primary hard drive is a 3.5 sata 500gb and im trying to add a 3.5 IDE 200gb hard drive. I've looked in computer management and everything but the hdd is not showing anywhere. Can anyone explain what i should do?

You didn't fill out your specs completely so I don't know what kind of motherboard you have. Does it support IDE? If you could fill in your System Specs it would help. Could you also post a Snip of your expanded Disk Management so we can look at that.
