Does it show in disk management?

Right-click My Computer > Manage > Disk Management - is the drive there? No? Right-click Disk management > rescan disks.

Is this a new, empty drive? Right-click the drive. Partition and format it. Do not do this if the drive contains data!

What is "the bottom tab"?
