I assume you are connecting an external hard drive.

does it show in disk management? (right click computer select manage - diskmanagement)

If it's not a Hard drive as per Fruit Bat /\0/\ above and you mean an external CD/DVD plugged into usb port, and is a CD or DVD that is not recognised in either ext drive or your DVD drive (E:) -

Is it only happening with one particular CD or DVD disc? have you tried a different CD or DVD disc?.

What type is the CD or DVD? is it one you have made (burnt) or one you have bought?

The camouflaged click here shows that it is a CD/DVD drive.
