Have you created a volume on the drive?

right click on my computer/manage/storage/disk management.

A little GUI should come up and prompt you on what to do next.

control panel> administrative tools> computer management> storage> disk management>

check to see if you have a unformatted disk...you need to format it and it will solve your problem.

Right click on the unallocated partition.

There should be an option to create a partition, then format it. make sure you do a quick format, other wise it will take an hour to format.

Kinda beat me to it, you are on the right track...you just need to format the disk. It says "unallocated". Format NTFS if only going from winxp->winxp, otherwise I would use Fat32. Most OS's can read/write no problem. (winxp, win98, linux, OSX)
