Windows 7: Ext. USB Drive (netwkd) Replaced Now Doesn't Show Up

Ext. USB Drive (netwkd) Replaced Now Doesn't Show Up

Win 7 Pro system. Have 2 external USB drives, both networked.

Just replace an hdd that was still working fine with a larger drive. Upon turning it on, the driver installed successfully, and the drive shows up in Device Manager, but the drive doesn't show up as a Networked Drive in My Computer like the one it replaced. In my ignorance, I thought it would show up like always.

Attached is a screenshot of what I can see. Can anyone guide me as to what needs to be done here? Thanks.
