You need to initialize it first. Right click on My computer - Manage - Disk Management. Is there any second Drive which requires initialization and creating new partition?
If yes then right click on free space and select Create partition. Follow the wizard and apply it. Then it will show itself as D or G in My Computer.

If he follows the Windows Disk Management wizard then the drive letter will be assigned automatically.
