Yes, by all means try formatting the 160. Only the manufacturer knows what state the drive was left in leaving the factory.
Once you get the 160 working don't leave it on the same IDE channel (cable) as your optical drive. Optical drives operate at 33MHz and hard drives operate normally at 100MHz. The optical drive will slow down the operation of the hard drive to 33MHz.

An explanation for the Slave 160 to not being able to be read is that it may have, somehow, been formatted or re-partitioned during the process of installing the OS on the new Master drive.
Another expalnation is that whatever killed your original Master also killed your Slave 160.
Can you try installing the 160 as a slave on another "known working" computer ?
