SCSI card type ?
Option actived in SCSI bios card ?
----
Partition problem ? perhaps only one 1 Gb
partition ...
Try to create a new partition ( extented).
----
Information during boot ( scsi initialisation )?
Example :
id(0) -  IBM DPM37265 - 8000 Mb
-----
With SCSI utility ( adaptec card : crtl a or q during boot ) try a low level format ( you loose all data).
----
With SCSI utility you have a tool to scan device . Informations about disk size ?

Check your basics
If they are the only scsi attached make sure they are both terminated
Make sure the adapter is set it ID7 high priority
HD can be set to any other ID
When you boot up make sure you go into bios and set drives to NONE.

Improper termination would render the drive inaccesible, or give some other sort of problem.  Is this the primary drive in the system?  Is it formatted in NTFS or FAT?

Some SCSI-adapters have a jumper for "over-1GB-support".

That would really only affect DOS based systems.  NT has support for large drives and wouldn't really fall into this category....but you never know.
