If you can see the drive in Applications --> utilities --> Disk Utility, then you will be able to reformat it in the Mac OS format and read it.
Good day, Damien

Here is a link to Microsoft on how to get to and use disk management. I do not know what operating system you are using but disk management has not changed a lot. The link below references XP and if you follow this step by step it will work great.

the problem is that your western digital operates using the NTFS (New Technology File System) which is the standard file system of Windows. Apple macs is not interopable with native NTFS therefore you need to install a read-write NTFS file-system driver on your mac.
an excellent free mac NTFS driver can be found here-
download and install the software then restart your mac.
