Device manager detects external HDD, but it's not showing up for me to put data onto it.

This image shows what I'm talking about, as I'm sure the title isn't clear.

Keep in mind, this is the HDD I took out of my PS3, so I'm not sure that matters yet. I figured I'd have to format it...but I can't even figure out how to do that without it being listed up there.

Anybody have any ideas as to what's up? If the drive was fucked, would it still show up in device manager?

Needs to be partitioned. Look for it in partition manager and create a new one.

I was looking for an option like that in device manager; forgot all about partition manager, as I haven't done this in years.

Thanks a bunch. I feel like an idiot now.

Assign it a drive letter and format it.
