It won't appear in My Computer because it needs formatting into such a fashion so that Windows can read it; its currently in a version unique to TIVO which Windows does not understand.

Do this by going to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Computer Management -> Disk Management. You may need to initialise the disk before you can format it.

You cant read a drive that has been pulled out of a TiVO. It has a properitary partition and file system on it. All major DVR systems are the same.

If you initialize the disk, thats if Windows will recognize it, you will erase all the data.
