✔ Best Answer
Windows may have failed to assign a drive letter to it, this means it does not show in Windows Explorer or dialog boxes.

Take a look in Disk Management to see if a "Raw" drive with no name is there. If it is, right-click it & choose "Change Drive Letter & Paths", then choose a letter.
