Assuming you haven't formated it yet, try connecting the drive on a different USB port or on different computers. It happens very often that the lower than needed voltage of the USB ports makes Windows unable to read the file system of the removable hard drives.
Try also a USB cable with double connector, that should fix the issue if the file system in the drive is still intact.
