Hello brother

                          I hope you are fine.Do not worry, first of all you have to check the jumper settings of your hdd.place the jumper on another port, then check it again, it will display the partition(Jumper is small transistor type thing, located back side of the hdd).And If it does not work, as you have already format your old hdd, again format it while connecting it with new pc.

Hope it will show the hdd.Then download icare data recovery software from cnet.com  to recover.

Thanx
