Partitions of hard drive are not showing up in My Computer. Why?

I have a desktop system in my office (config is pentium IV, 1 GB RAM, Windows XP SP3). I am trying to attach a second 250 GB hard disk to this system. The harddisk drive is detected in the BIOS and shows up in the device manager also. But it's partitions are not appearing in the My Computer.

"Check if the previous system from where this 250GB NTFS partitioned drive comes
was updated up to Windows XP SP3 too.

Did you try: 'Action' ==> 'Rescan Disks' yet?"
