  1. First check that it doesn't just need a drive-letter manually assigning to it:

    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'.

    If assigning drive letter is not possible or makes no difference, the drive may have failed. You can test it with "SeaTools for Windows":

    If you need to replace it, I recommend you buy either a Western Digital or Hitachi. I've had several Seagate external drives fail on me in the past 18 months. The other two brands are still working fine.
