Look at device manager to see if the drive is located there. If so, is there a yellow warning?

Can you post a screenshot of disk management screen, Type diskmgmt.msc in start menu search.

What other changes have you done since the last time it worked?

These are the exact types of things that I like to use system restore points for. Can you try restoring back to a point in time where you knew the drive was working?
