There is no "factory reset" for a hard drive. For an external, portable hard drive all you do is plug it in to a USB port. In addition, the My Passport drive requires that you install the WD SES driver from here:

If you can't see drive letter for the drive, it may just need one assigning manually:

Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management
In the bottom-right panel, find the ribbon which relates to the Passport drive (No name & "RAW" file system).
Right-click and choose Change Drive Letter & Paths.
Click "Add"
Choose a letter.
Click 'OK'.
