look for it in disk management, you may have to assign a drive letter.

I 'lost' one of mine and the way I recovered it was by disconnecting it, rebooting the computer without it and then re-connecting it.

I don't know why it got lost or why it returned but it's still there!

This usually happens when the hdd has been formatted (as in your case) but no partition has been assigned.
ie. there is nothing on it.
Go to start and right click on Computer.
Select manage then disk management from the menu.
Your empty hdd should be shown there.
Right click on it and select format.
Choose a name for the drive or leave empty then ok.
Can take some time depending on the size of the drive and the speed of your computer.
