External hard drive not detected but shows up in devices and printers


I'm having trouble with my external hard drive. It was working fine recently, but now it's not recognized on any computer I try to plug it into. If I go into 'devices and printers' in the control panel, it is recognized there and says in properties that there are no problems with the device.

The light on the external hard drive works and it makes a sound like it usually did when I plug it into the computer. Sometimes I still have the option to 'safely remove the device' but other times I don't.

Any help would be appreciated as I have tons of photos on there I need.
