right click on my computer and choose manage, go to disk manager (i'm assuming by your typing that your system may not be in english, so look for the best match), in the right hand side locate the external drive, right click and choose "assign drive letter"

If you have never used the disk before, it may just need to be initialized which can be done from disk management.
