Windows 8.1 cannot read files on my external drive.

External Hard Drive: Western Digital Elements, Serial: WD4000C035-000.

I have plugged this hard drive into a Mac computer and then a Chrome computer, but it was originally plugged into a Windows computer long before those two. I think that's the reason that Windows 8.1 isn't reading the files stored on there. I'm wondering if there's a solution to my connundrum maybe including some sort of reader utility for alternately formatted files.

Do you get an error message when you try to connect it? Is it picking up the drive and not showing the files, or not even picking up the drive?
