Hello everyone,
So, I recently unplugged my external hard drive from my Wii U to plug it on my PC.
It's a hard drive using usb 3.0 and I plugged it in a usb 3.0 port.
I never used these port before and it doesn't seems to work.

When I plug it in my PC, i can hear the noise that means that something has been plugged in, but in My PC, where all drive are shown, it doesn't appears.
I suspect it's because it was formatted for Wii U.
So my question is, how do I format an external hard drive I can't acces?
Also, if needed, how do I know what is the drive of that usb port? (S: T: U: etc..)

thanks for all help :)

I just used USB Drive letter manager and I get this :

When I try to eject it, or safely remove it or do any action, I get an error message.


FIXED : Just had to format it by another way. Like if I was formating it for the first time
