Hard disk trouble

I've plugged in my harddisk via a SATA/IDE to USB converter to my
laptop. The device is created as /dev/sdb, but fdisk -l or parted,
gparted do not show it as a drive. 

Here's the dmesg output:

> scsi8 : usb-storage 1-2:1.0
> scsi 8:0:0:0: Direct-Access     USB TO I DE/SATA Device   0041 PQ: 0 ANSI: 0
> sd 8:0:0:0: Attached scsi generic sg3 type 0
> sd 8:0:0:0: [sdc] Attached SCSI disk

How do I access my drive? I intend to format it etc. and then set up
fedora 13 on it.
