Windows may have failed to give it a drive letter, and if it has you can do it manually:

Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management

In the bottom-right panel, find the ribbon which represents your Seagate Expansion.
Right-click that ribbon and choose "Change Drive Letter & Paths".
Click "Add".
Choose a letter.
Click 'OK'.
