I have folowed your instructions for assigning a drive letter and the drive does not show up here either. Drives have worked on this laptop before and still work on other PC's. I-phone shows up fine.

Windows 7 OS, HO laptop, one hard drive is My Book and other is Hornetech, one USB 2, one USB 3 have tried both on 2 and 3 slots.

That's because you don't remove the drive safely from Windows first. Now Windows can't recognize the drive, does it show up in Computer and says unusable? Is it shown in the Device Manager?
