Check in disk management to see if it has a drive letter, if not try assigning one.

already done bris, assigned a name still cant open or explore as it needs to be formatted first

yes mate, im also looking at recovery programmes so that i can take the files (if any) off then format it

Any reccomendations about the programmes aswel?

I came across Data recovery for Windows and Mac. I haven't tried it but it has some good reviews. Good luck. s.
