I recently bought a Seagate Barracuda 2 TB HDD SATA 6 Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive ST2000DM001 and I installed my computer. I already have another hard drive installed so when I start the computer I checked the BIOS and it recognized the hard drive. But when I go to My Computer the drive is not there. I installed another hard drive that was from my old laptop and that worked but for some reason this one doesn't show up. I checked the the device manager and it says that "this device is working properly".

It seems that the new hard drive is not formatted. You may use the disk management tool to format and partition the new hard drive in Windows.
