If you use command line you should be able to see the drive

fdisk -l

It will need formatting/configuring before you can mount it / use it

If you prefer a graphical program to see and configure the new drive you can try GPARTED

You will also need to adjust your OS to automount as well after formatting. By altering startup configurations fstab.

scan your system first; no need to reboot

echo "- - -" > /sys/class/scsi_host/<number>/scan

replace <number> with the actual number listed in /sys/class/scsi_host
then the drive should show with fdisk
