Can't Add Active Directory group to SQL Server database

I have a SQL Server 2005 DB and I like to add a Active Directory group to the database. When I select to add a new user and select login and browse, my Active Directory group that I just created does not show up to be selected. How can I make this happen, so I can add the group to the DB?

Yes, its part of the domain. Should I try typing in the group name? There are other AD groups that have been around for a while, but SQL Server does not seem to find them. Maybe I am browsing wrong, when trying to add a new login/user.

when adding a group make sure that you have selected the domainname instead of the local computer.

I have selected the domain. Even my gtrapp is not found. The only type of objects that can be searched on is logins. I have another server where there are some AD groups showing up where I can select from, but on this new server, they don't appear. Why is that?

I needed to add the AD Group to the SQL Server first, then add the Group to the DB.
