Go to Disk Management in the Computer Management screen, and look for the hard drive in the bottom half of the screen. If it's there, just right click it and initialize.

Dunno about the second one.

I had this problem, if the drive is showing up in computer management under the disk management screen, then you can fix it, I literally only fixed this problem I was having yesterday.

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307844 Assign it a drive letter, you also have to format it.

I can't remember what else I did or how I did it but it's easily fixable don't panic.

oh one more thing. you know when you have a USB stick in, and when you want to remove it, you click on remove harware safely in the bottum right corner. when i do that, i have not just my usb stick, but also my C drive, cd/dvd drive and the other hard drive. i dont think this is normal.
