Hi bigdogjeff!

Go to START-->RUN and type diskmgmt.msc. This will open up the disk manager. Do you see the new hard drive listed there? It won't appear at the top, but will show in the bottom half where it shows the partition tables and will most likely appearl as unallocated space or might have a red circle with a minus "-" sign inside of it.
