    Plug it in to your computer and boot into Windows XP. Go to Start menu, Run, and type 'diskmgmt.msc' and hit enter.
    Do you see the drive listed? If it's listed but doesn't show in My Computer, right click on the partitions listed for the disk and either format, if needed, or just assign it an appropriate drive letter.
