If you unplugged the drive without first using the "Safely Remove Hardware" facility, this may have corrupted the drive.

If you go into Disk Management ("Start > Run", type diskmgmt.msc and click OK) is the drive shown? It may be necessary to format the drive to regain use of it, although this would involve the loss of the data on the drive.
