    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 :)

    Well, I want to format it to ntfs, I heard that fat32 is limited to 2TB disk size and 4GB file size.
    From the start, it's a problem since my hard drive is 3TB

    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
