External hard drive problem help

Hi I purchased an external hard drive last year which has been plugged into the PS4 for a few months. I have gone to use it on my laptop as my music is saved on it and my computer is not recognising it.

I have tried other sub ports and tried removing it from device manager and re installing and still nothing. It shows up as un allocated in disk management.

Have you tried it back on the PS4?

Did you format the disk as exfat on the PS4 if so your win 7 system may not recognise it.
