Second hard drive installation - driver not in use

I wonder if anyone can think something about the problem I'm having.

I have just installed a slave HDD (and the BIOS recognises it as such). The device manager recognises it too, and the "device status" reports it as working properly. However the "device usage" is graied out, and I think it should be "enabled". As a result, Windows Explorer can not see it.
Any tips? Thank you

Have you Created a Partition and formatted it as you cannot use it until you have. You can do this from Control Panel\Admin\Services\disc management
