Is it being recognised in bios? If it is then you might need to partition it for windows to see it properly. You can do this in the disc manager (right click my computer > Manage) Hope this helps

go into the control panel and click add/remove hardware... and manually add the device and then use the auto update to download the drivers

hmm..is the drive visible in the my computer panel? and you could do a global search and copy and paste if that goes quicker..

It assumes that the drive C is the drive you booted from or the "root" drive. You must make it something other than "C". Try putting in a camera card, hooking up an external drive or other device that the computer makes drive "C" THEN hook up your passport. It will be "D" or "G" or something other than "C" and it will work.

SOURCE: corrupt portable drive
I had the same problem with my WD passport. Most of the folders displayed wierd characters and couldn't access those folders. Thanks to Zero Assumption Recovery software, I had successfully recovered all my files. Check this link on how it works:
If your hard drive is detected by your computer you can use this software for data recovery.
