I have an external HD shell, I installed a 320Gb WD Caviar Blue HD in the shell. I connected it all to the computer and nothing. Computer wont recognize the drive. What do I do?

That was my first thought. It does start up and on program on my computer does see the hard drive. I just cant seem to access it.

And yes, I have restarted the Computer.
