It may need a drive-letter manually assigning to it.
With the external drive connected and mains adapter attached:

Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management

In the bottom-right panel, find the ribbon which relates to that external drive (no drive letter and it may say "Raw").
Right-click it & choose "Change Drive Letter & Paths"
Click "New"
Choose a letter.
Click 'OK'
