Was it working before and has now stopped working? You have not said anything about this.

An answer is as good as the question. So when posting your question please provide good quality detail to help those trying to help you.

Having said this:
Is it formatted? If not you need to go into disk management andd format it.
If it is formatted, try a different USB port.

NOTE: Some USB devices need more power than can be provided by the USB port. Is that the case in your situation?
