Does the drive appear in Device Manager (Control panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager. Also is it listed if you go to Start - Run - diskmgmt.mst.

Sorry about the typo. That Run command should have been diskmgmt.msc

disk management says its unallocated

I don't know if this will work, but give it a try. In Disk Management right click and select "Change Drive Letter and paths".

You will need to partion and format the disk.
Go to Disk Management and use the help file,it will advise you what to do

What options does it give you if you right click on the drive space in Disk Management.
