Hello.

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 http://gparted.org/

Best regards.

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
