New Drive Jumper Settings Pro Tools

I decided to finally hook-up my Home Computer, so im not spending my life entirely at my Studio.
My Home Computer is a Dell, Windows XP, and has Pro Tools 7.1 LE on it.
I now just purchased a Second Drive just for AUDIO.

The Dell came with a
WD Caviar SE16 WD2500AAKS SATA Hard Drive
250 GB, 3 Gb/s, 16 MB Cache, 7200 RPM
As the primary “C” Drive.

I purchased a brand new
WD Caviar SE16 WD50000AAKS SATA Hard Drive
500 GB, 3 Gb/s, 16 MB Cache, 7200 RPM
For Audio Only.

I connected the SATA Cable and the Sata Power cable correctly (So I Think).
When I go into Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Disk Management,
The new second drive is not showing up.

Is this because I don’t have the Jumpers set correctly?
If not, then what setting does it need to be on.
As of now no jumper pins are set, as it in “DEFAULT”

DEFAULT (no pins): Do not change default setting if you intend to use drive in a desktop computer. Change the jumper setting only if you intend to use the drive in an enterprise storage environment.

SSC MODE (1-2): Spread spectrum clocking feature enabled or disabled. Default setting is disabled or no jumper shunt placed on pins 1-2. Adding the jumper to pins 1-2 enables the spread spectrum clocking feature.

PM2 Enabled Mode (3-4): To enable power-up in standby (power management 2 or PM2) mode, place a jumper on pins 3-4. This mode enables controlled spinup by spinup in accordance with ATA standard and is main for server/workstation environments operating in multiple-drive configurations.

OPT1: 150 MB/s data transfer speed enabled or disabled. Default setting is disabled. To enable 150 MB/s data transfer speed, place a jumper on pins 5-6.

ahhh got it to work ...
being its SATA drive it doesnt need to be set differently.
Just on Default is good enough. I would only need to change the Jumoper pin setting for power management.

SO its set on Defualt. Installed properly.
How I got it to work was that I had to go into my Bios and turn on my SATA2 port.
