Lost drive letter (H:)

as of turning on my laptop today the drive letter previously (H:) has gone. It is an iomega 1 TB external hard drive. i have Sony Vaio Lap top, I also have an Acer both work but neither will recognise the drive,That is to say they will not show (H:) i have nothing else connected to the pc,at the moment bcz i have disconnecter everything to get back to basic setup. Both pcs know the drive is there when i connect it,divice manager tell me i have it there,Speccy tells me it is there,it even tells me the capacity and that it is actually a samsung HD103si usb divice,but i cannot open the drive bcs the drive letter is gone,there is nothing to click on(C:) is there and any number of flash drives i care to plug in are recognised and assigned a drive letter imediatly,but not the external hard drive. I formatted it bcz it was getting too full of junk so i moved the stuff i wanted to the sony formatted the iomega,normal NTFC format restore defaults etc but it seem like the pc got carried away &removed even the drive letter, what can i do to reclaim it ?

Go to drive management and.........
Try initializing the drive or adding the drive letter.
