Could anyone please help? My computer wouldn't recognized the 1TB WD Passport

I accidentally unplugged my 1TB WD Passport while working on a file that is saved in it. When I plugged it back in, my computer wouldn’t recognized it. Yet, the light was on and there was sound. I had tried to Google for solution, but none of them worked. Could anyone please let me know is there anything I can do? Below is the information of my WD Passport and the solutions I had tried. I had also plugged it into a different USB port and tried to pulugged it in another company, but it didn’t work.
Thank you for your help.

Seems to me that your drive is still working but the partition is corrupted. You may format your drive in order to be able to use it again. However, please note that formatting the drive will delete all data stored on it.
