Question about Computers & Internet
In Windows? Try volume manager (admin. tools or via rightclicking on the drive, which you should totally have tried first.) If there are already files on it but they don't show, perhaps that computer doesn't know how to access the filesystem used initially, and you need to get the appropriate filesystem (or a compatible likeness) installed on the machine at hand.
Often USB hard drives come preformatted to FAT32, but that filesystem can't handle files over 2GB, so you almost certainly need to install NTFS or something better instead.
