USB Drive not recognized in Disk Management

I have a WD Elements USB drive I can see in "My Computer" (Windows Server 2008 R2), but is not listed in "Disk Management". Not a big deal normally, but I need to attach it to a Hyper-V virtual machine and can't do that if its not mounted and accessible in "Disk Management"...

Thanks in advance for any assistance!!

Is there a drive letter assigned to the drive in My computer?

I have had a drive that all I had to do was plug it in and then go into deivce managment, right click and un-install the drive and then right click on the computer name in the top of the deivce manager screen and have it re-scan for devices.

Yes, there's a drive letter, just not listed in Disk Management. I've been plugging and unplugging, booting with it plugged in, etc. But I'll try those steps though... thanks.
