Go to the drive makers website and download the disc manager.

Hard disk tools :-
Seatools click here
WD Data lifeguard click here
Maxblast3 click here

What op system are you using?

Is the drive recognised in BIOS? and windows?

control panel--admin tools--computer management--disk management--

The disk should show up as unallocated space,
click on disk, you should then have options to format it.
