Windows 7: External Hard Drive Not Recognized

External Hard Drive Not Recognized

Hello. I am currently banging my head against the wall while typing -- I have a WD Book that I've been using for the past two months or so, ever since I got my new laptop. No issues until today. I used it this morning for something, ejected it, turned it back on/connected it a few hours later for a routie backup and my computer acts like it doesn't exist. Not visible anywhere, including disk management. Works on my husband's laptop where we checked it for errors and didn't find any. Any insight would be great. I am completely dumb when it comes to computers so I apologize for what is probably a very basic question.
