If they are classified as unallocated, you must put a file system on
them before they will be visible in Windows Explorer.
This means that they must be initialized (formatted) by Windows (you).
Just make sure they are partitioned and formatted first.
(There must be at least a one formatted partition on each drive before
they will be visible to Explorer.)
Additionally, if they are already partitioned and formatted with a
non-windows format (ext, ext3, Reiser, etc), they will not be visible
