IF the BIOS sees the drive correctly, in Windows right-click Computer/My Computer and choose Manage. When that comes up click Disk Management, if it's shown there it may need to have a partition created on it which will be followed by formatting. After that see if a drive letter has been assigned, need one for Windows Explorer to access it.
