I can see my external hard drive in device manager, but not able to access it

My external hard drive shows up in device manager but not in the computer like the rest of my internal hard drives.
Any help is welcome.

  1. Did you partition and format it?
  2. how can I format it when it does not have a drive letter?
  3. check for it in disk manager

    Doesn't need a drive letter to partition or format. That's what the disk manager is for.
