when it says that, click initialize, and try just mac os extended, not journaled, then after initializing it, select it in the list, though it should already be selected, and click mount.
after it mounts, quit disk utility, open syatem preferences>accounts, select your admin account, click startup items tab and drag the mounted disk to the list. this will make it mount at start up. eject that disk, restart, and see if it shows up. if not, it may be a hrdware problem,how good are you at hard drives and such? hardware?
