Is it visible in Disk Management?

Control Panel > Admin Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management

If you see the ribbon releating to it in bottom-right pane, right-click it and choose "Change Drive Letter & Paths". Click "New" and choose a letter.

I would have suggested you test the drive for possible failure but that's only possible when the system can see it.
