Adaptec 2940UW, how to acces drive connected to it

I have installed a adaptec 2940UW card in my pc  and trying to acces the drives connected to it (in win XP).
Everythings works fine, that means winxp device manager does reconize the card and the drives, but i dont see the drives appear in my explorer.

What is the thing i have to do to see the drives in windows?

thanks

I did do this with 1 of the four drives, but this one drive i can not see in windows.

Do i need to format the three other drives to?

In WinXP, you just need to go to disk management and format the drive.

In case you are not familiar with it. You have to add snap in for disk managment.
