Can not see disk in Windows Explorer?

Had to put in a replacement disk but now Window Explore doesn't display it. Under Device Manager it sees it. Also under Computer Management/Disk Management, it sees the disk and indicates the disk is healthy.

Appreciate your assistance.

It sounds like you need to go back into Disk Management and assign it a drive letter.
