Windows 7: Having trouble with WD 500 GB external after using diskpart clean

Having trouble with WD 500 GB external after using diskpart clean

After trying to use the diskpart to clean and then allocate a partition on my External HDD that ended up not working, now I can't get the drive to load any of the data I did store on it before. (Part of the 500 GB HDD is set for use with 360 but only 16GB). Now I can't get the drive to load other than when in the Computer Management>Disk Management and it shows up as Disk 1 but unallocated. I attached a screen shot of the Computer Manager.

Thanks for the help!

So what exactly are you trying to do ?

Right click on it and make your partition or partitions.

Looks as though you wiped the whole thing.

When I try and right click to assign it a letter I don't get the option. I'll take a screen shot of what is available. And if I did wipe it, is there anything I can do to fix it?
