External Hard Drive Problems

I bought an Buffalo External hard drive which was working fine until I re-installed my laptop with Windows XP home. Since doing this, I've been unable to see the external drive under My Computer. I can see it in the device manager (working properly) and can also see it computer management though i'm unable to assign a drive letter. It also does show the symbol to safely remove hardware.
Can anyone help as I have backed up work on it!!!!!!

Regards

How does it work when you connect it to another comp which has XP?

Also, if you uninstall it from devmgmt.msc, and then scan for new material while it is connected, it should find it.

Also, in diskmgmt.msc can you scroll down and find the drive letter for it.
