wd1600bekt sorta not found in bios

i just bought a wd1600bekt 160 gb 2.5 hdd off ebay. i got even though it was being sold as broken. i have done this befor and  have no problems many times. this time however i got one.

it only shows up in the bios as [] with a size of 0. i have tried several different softwares and both usb abd sata connections, both on my laptop and tower with no joy.

was hoping that some one here could help.

Looks like a corrupted partition.

Try using a software to test and reformat if possible.
