HD in optical drive bay not recognised

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Hi all, this is my first time posting here and I was wondering if anyone could help with a problem I'm having with my early 2008 MacBook Pro. I just upgraded the hard drive to a 128gb SSD and popped the old 250gb SATA hard drive in an optical drive bay caddy. The problem seems to be that the old hard drive isn't recognised - doesn't show up in Finder, Disk Utility or Terminal. Doesn't even show up in System Info. The drive spins up fine (I can hear it). Do I have to do anything to make it show up? I reset the PRAM and that had no effect.
